An Afternoon With Malorie Blackman

Yesterday, Kieran, Tyler, Toby, Gariella and Ruby visited Waterstones, Piccadilly - the largest book store in Europe - where they met Children's Laureate Malorie Blackman and writer of teen books, James Dawson.


Malorie began by announcing the top ten books in the 'Writes of Passage', 50 books that will change your life and keep you reading. You can find the full list here… http://www.worldbookday.com/writes-of-passage/ 
 
This was followed by a reading from her book, Noughts and Crosses. 
 

Next was a question and answer session. Toby was chosen from the audience to ask his question, take a look…
 

 
Finally, we all chose a book from Malorie's collection to have signed. We have an area in the library dedicated to Malorie and her books, it's above the Free Reader books, take a look next time you visit!
