We're very excited to welcome 2017 YA Book Award winner and Hackney resident Patrice Lawrence to the shop on September 20th, when she'll be reading from her latest novel, 'Indigo Donut' before chatting with Fen Coles.

Seventeen-year-old Indigo has had a tough start in life, having grown up in the care system after her dad killed her mum. Bailey, also seventeen, lives with his parents in Hackney and spends all his time playing guitar or tending to his luscious ginger afro. When Indigo and Bailey meet at sixth form, serious sparks fly. But when Bailey becomes the target of a homeless man who seems to know more about Indigo than is normal, Bailey is forced to make a choice he should never have to make.
A life-affirming story about falling in love and everyone's need to belong.

Patrice Lawrence was born in Brighton and brought up in an Italian-Trinidadian household in Mid Sussex. Her previous novel 'Orangeboy' won the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize for Older Readers and the YA Book Award, and was shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award. She loves crime fiction, sci-fi and trying to grow things. Her ideal mixtape includes drum 'n' bass, Bruce Springsteen and Studio Ghibli soundtracks. Music can't help creeping into her books.

Fen Coles is co-director of Letterbox Library, a 32-year-old children's booksellers and workers' cooperative, specialising in inclusive children's books. Fen has worked at Letterbox Library since 2005. Prior to this she worked in the LGBT and women's charitable sector, and taught Lesbian Cultural Studies to adult returners (while completing her PhD in lesbian horror films.)
