This is an exciting opportunity to listen to the acclaimed and much-loved children’s authors, Sita Brahmachari and Michael Rosen in conversation about children’s literature. Sita Brahmachari, a multi-award-winning writer, talks about her novels for children and young adults and why diversity matters in her stories. Artichoke Hearts (2011) won the Waterstones Children's Book Award and was voted in the Guardian's top 50 books celebrating diversity since the 1950s. We celebrate the launch of Sita Brahmachari’s powerful YA novel, 'When Shadows Fall ' (2021) described as a gripping, tender, terrifying work. We also celebrate the launch of Michael Rosen's new picturebook about perseverance, hope and overcoming fear, Sticky McStickstick (2021), illustrated by Tony Ross.
