Melvin Burgess and Margo Lanagan at Edinburgh International Book FestivalWhen: 6:30pm Monday 20th August 2012
Meet two of the most controversial authors writing for young adults today. Melvin Burgess and Margo Lanagan have both been criticised for the explicit nature of some of their work, in particular Doing It by Melvin and Tender Morsels by Margo, novels that reflect elements of life all too familiar to today’s teenagers.
Come and hear them talk about everything from sex to drugs, mythology to fairy tales and let them demonstrate how a skilful writer can sensitively lead their reader down any path to explore difficult subjects.
Suitable for ages 14-16.Type of event: Author Event, Literary Festival
