Event News: YALC Pop Up Event.


After a very successful YA Lit Con in the summer, this Sunday sees a pop up event as part of London Film and Comic Con Winter. From the YALC website:

We’re delighted to announce that YALC will be popping up at the London Film and Comic Con Winter event, on Sunday 19 October, with two special spin-off panel events.

At 1.00pm, Hey YA! will bring together YALC favourites James Dawson and Non Pratt with superstar US author James Frey to discuss all things young adult fiction – what YA is, who reads it and why we love it – chaired by YALC’s Katherine Woodfine. (James Frey will also be doing a solo event at 2.00pm followed by a signing session.)

At 3.00pm, join us for Female Characters in Fantasy Fiction – a panel discussion exploring gender and genre with Laure Eve, Zoe Marriott and Samantha Shannon, chaired by Liz de Jager.

Each event will be followed by a one-hour book signing, with books available to buy from our Waterstones bookshop. Events are free with a ticket to London Film and Comic Con.

Tickets to London Film and Comic Con will be available to purchase on the door from 9am, priced ay £15 for early bird tickets (entry from 9.00am) and £8 for standard tickets (entry from 11.00am). For more information about Winter LFCC and tickets, see the website:

This sounds like a great opportunity to hear some great authors speak – if I was in London I’d definitely be going along.
