Which is better? James Dawson’s “indescribably bone-chilling” teen horror fiction? Or his “informative and important” (not to mention hilarious) non-fiction books? There’s only one way to find out! Meet the author himself at MCBF 2015.

The Manchester Children’s Book Festival team is delighted that reigning Queen of Teen, James, will be heading to the city to meet fans and discuss his award-winning range of books. This is your chance to meet the Under My Skin and This Book Is Gay author and hear him read from and talk about his work.

Named a Stonewall School Role Model in 2014, James has been praised for the fearless and forthright way that his writing educates and informs young people about teenage life and sexuality. His first non-fiction book, Being A Boy, drew on his ten years of experience teaching Sex Ed to teenagers and perfectly combined honesty and advice about puberty, sex and relationships with plenty of juvenile humour to keep young readers giggling. After all, as James says on his website, “If you can’t laugh at a willy, what can you laugh at?”

When not making teenagers snigger, James is just as skillful when it comes to giving them sleepless nights with his thrillingly tense fiction. With books including Hollow Pike, Say Her Name and Cruel Summer, the author has been responsible for raising electricity bills around the world as teenagers everywhere sleep with the lights on.

Picking up multiple awards, hordes of fans and universally strong reviews, James Dawson is a name that deserves to be on every teenager’s bookshelf. His appearance at MCBF 2015 is sure to be a huge hit, so book tickets now by visiting mcbf.org.uk/whats-on/events/james-dawson
