Happy Ever After

Sally Gardner, Nick Lake and Alexia Casale

Hay Festival 2013, 

Sally Gardner and Nick Lake have won major awards for fiction – the Costa and the Printz. They are joined by newcomer Alexia Casale to talk about themes in YA fiction and whether readers need happy endings.

Sally Gardner is a highly acclaimed writer of award winning fiction such as I, Coriander, The Red Necklace and most recently the Costa-winning Maggot Moon, currently shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal.

Alexia Casale’s debut The Bone Dragon is a blend of psychological thriller and fairytale in which the boundaries between fact and fantasy are very fragile.

Nick Lake has just won the prestigious Printz award for In Darkness, also shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal and has a highly acclaimed new novel out called Hostage Three.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear three extremely talented writers answer questions about their work, and to ask some questions of your own.
