Sat 9 February
Carriageworks Theatre - The Studio
Yan Ge’s early work, focusing on the wonders, gods and ghosts of Chinese myth, have made her especially popular with teenagers; her YA novella, White Horse, is published by Hope Road Books.
In Mountain Stories, six tales by bestselling author Ye Guanquin (Valley Press), tigers, pandas, monkeys and bears live alongside the region’s equally various human residents.
Join Yan Ge and Valley Press publisher Jamie McGarry in discussion with host Susan Barker (Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize Winner, and a New York Times Notable Book author), to discuss young adult writing, inspirations, short fiction, culture, craft, mysticism, and new voices.
