In the limitless realms of fantasy fiction, teenagers can be the heroes, they can download knowledge directly to the brain through a microchip in their necks and they can scale mountains to defeat evil dragons.
The fantasy genre is one of the best-loved genres in YA fiction, with obvious favourites such as Harry Potter and His Dark Materials living on in the imagination into adulthood. Often, in these books, it is up to a young hero or heroine to save the day.
This event brings together three novelists at the cutting edge of YA fantasy. Sarah Mussi’s The Snowdonia Chronicles follow one girl’s monumental fight against the evil forces tearing her home apart, while Peadar Ó Guilín’s The Call and Kate Griffin’s Magicals Anonymous series bring dystopian visions of the future into chilling reality where young people are the only hope for change.
Join event chair, Kevin Duffy, and our expert panel for this fantastic foray into fiction and discover the world as you’ve never seen it before.
