Waterstones Event with Alice Oseman

To celebrate the release of her debut novel Full Disclosure, journalist and activist Camryn Garrett will be joined by author Alice Oseman (Solitaire, Heartstopper) for her only UK public event at Waterstones Kensington.

FULL DISCLOSURE is an honest, affecting, sex-positive, laugh-out-loud-funny young adult novel starring Simone Garcia-Hampton, a black teen born HIV-positive. Raised by loving queer parents who assure her that she is not defined by her diagnosis, Simone navigates a whole new world of fear, disclosure and radical self-acceptance when she falls in love – and lust – for the first time. Simone’s journey to share her secret while still protecting her heart is a thoughtful, compelling heart-warming look at the particular challenges of adolescence.

Come and hear Camryn and Alice discuss their shared experience of getting a book deal at only 17, their thoughts on growing up on social media and the importance of representation and diversity within YA.

The event will be chaired by freelance literary journalist and Editor Sarah Shaffi.
