'RICH AND DIVERSE FICTION Daniel Hahn, author of the Oxford Companion to Children's Literature, talks to some of the best and brightest authors from the British Young Adult fiction scene. Carnegie Medal-nominated Elizabeth Laird and Tanya Landman along with the Bookseller YA Book Prize-shortlisted David Almond and James Dawson come together for a joyful celebration of the richness, diversity and intelligence of writing for young people today.

Elizabeth Laird is the multi-award-winning author of several much-loved children's books including The Garbage King, The Fastest Boy in the World and Dindy and the Elephant. She has been shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Medal six times. She lives in Britain now, but still likes to travel as much as she can.
