A #LoveOzYA All Stars panel


Please note: This is an online event.

Join four rising stars of #LoveOzYA to talk about their brand-new YA novels! Whether you’re into edge-of-your-seat mysteries, rom-coms that riff on pop culture, or own-voices journeys of self-discovery, we’ve got something for every YA reader.

Former Readings bookseller Jo Case will chat to two of last year’s Readings Young Adult Book Prize shortlisted authors with new books out now, Sarah Epstein (Deep Water) and Poppy Nwosu (Taking Down Evelyn Tait), as well as two stellar debut authors, Kay Kerr (Please Don’t Hug Me) and Anna Whateley (Peta Lyre’s Rating Normal). They’ll share their writing journeys, and a taste of their new books.

This is an online event and free to attend. Please book here, and you will be sent a unique Zoom link.
