LSE Literary Weekend - ReaLITy: creative responses to social realities


Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Morris Gleitzman, Elizabeth Laird; Anthony McGowan; Patrick Ness; Meg Rosoff
Chair: Professor Sarah Worthington

Recorded on 27 February 2009 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

The culmination of a creative-writing competition for London state schools, this panel discussion looks at how authors find inspiration in contemporary social issues- from gang culture and knife crime, to the more timeless problems of being a teenager. The panel of popular and award-winning teen authors have dealt with topics as wide ranging as Ethiopian street children and Nazi Germany, with a mixture of reality, comedy and fantasy.
