Steve Voake - Dangerous Children's Fiction

Tue 08/12/15 7:30 PM - 9:45 PM

The novelist Steve Voake explores the boundaries of 'the dangerous' in young person's writing.

The novelist Steve Voake is the speaker at the December meeting of the Hampshire Writers’ Society.

Steve is a critically-acclaimed author of children’s and young adult fiction. He explores the boundaries of ‘the dangerous’ in writing for children through to young adults in, for instance, his most recent novel 'Blood Hunters' (2009), a transatlantic tale of predatory violence that begins in a Mexican jungle.

Please note that this evening gets underway from 6.30 p.m. There will be mince pies, music and morris dancing in the Stripe Theatre foyer. Also, you are encouraged to come dressed as your favourite character from young person’s literature; members of the Society’s organizing committee will, as ever, be exemplary and dress themselves mostly as characters from 'The Wizard of Oz' (including Toto, the dog).

All are welcome to attend. Admission (for the talk): £5 per person; free for members of
the Hampshire Writers’ Society and for students. (Membership of the Hampshire
Writers’ Society: £30 per year, free for students; for further details, see the website
