It might not have escaped your attention in the last few months that E Lockhart’s WE WERE LIARS has been a pretty big book for us… It’s been reviewed almost everywhere, and is also shortlisted for the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize (announcing the winner on Thursday this week eep!) and has just been nominated for the Carnegie Medal. Goodreads even reckon it’s going to be the “it book” of the year – and they have a kergillion members so it really has been something special. Why else would we have bought the book within only 48 hours of reading it and published it in just three months?
Well the time has come for us to welcome E Lockhart to the UK – we’re so excited we can hardly contain all the SQUEEEEEEEEE-ing. We’re delighted to say we’ll be hosting E in the first week of December – Christmas presents for everyone you know, SORTED = signed copies of WE WERE LIARS! She’ll also be talking about the brilliant title THE DISREPUTABLE HISTORY OF FRANKIE LANDAU BANKS which we published just last week. Although very different to WE WERE LIARS it’s completely dazzling in it’s own way, so why not prepare for her visit by having a read before she gets here?
So finally, if you want to catch E Lockhart whilst she’s in the UK here are her public dates –
