A look at rebels in all shapes and sizes

This event was originally scheduled for 12 December. Existing ticket holders will be contacted by the Box Office.

In this Literature Matters event we celebrate the British Library’s exhibition on rebels in children’s literature with former Children’s Laureate, Malorie Blackman. She reflects on her writing career and how her work has been adapted into graphic fiction, plays and TV series. 

This event takes place at Mary Ward House, 7 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9SN

Malorie Blackman has written over 50 books and is acknowledged as one of today’s most imaginative and convincing writers for young readers. She has been awarded numerous prizes for her work, including the Red House Children’s Book Award and the Fantastic Fiction Award. She has also been shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. In 2005, she was honoured with the Eleanor Farjeon Award in recognition of her contribution to children’s books, and in 2008 she received an OBE for her services to children’s literature. She was Children’s Laureate from 2013 to 2015 and has been described by The Times as ‘a national treasure’.
