We are over the moon to welcome the wonderful Laura Bates to the shop to celebrate her new young adult fantasy novel Sisters of Sword and Shadow.
Laura’s books are the epitome of feminist brilliance – from the eye-opening contemporary teen book The Burning to hard-hitting nonfiction on gender and equality like Men Who Hate Women, whatever Laura has to say, we have time for.
Sisters of Sword and Shadow is a thrilling gender-swapped tale of the Knights of the Round Table for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sarah J. Maas. We hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be a great night of fantasy and legend!
