Event announcement – Online panel with Alice Oseman

My new novel is being released next week, and to celebrate I’m doing an online Zoom panel with Alice Oseman through Forbidden Planet.

Join Lauren James and Alice Oseman at 7:00pm on Thursday 3rd September as they celebrate the publication of Lauren’s thrilling new book, The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker with a conversation about power hungry ghosts, female antiheroes, shocking twists (no spoilers though of course), and facing the parts of yourself you’ve always been too scared to face, whether that be sexuality, or your unprecedented willingness to murder!

Admission to this great event comes FREE with every copy of The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker (signed) purchased prior to 5pm BST Tuesday 1st September, which also comes with an exclusive bookmark and swag.

Published by Lauren James

Lauren James was born in 1992, and has a Masters degree from the University of Nottingham, UK, where she studied Chemistry and Physics. She is the twice Carnegie-nominated British Young Adult author of The Loneliest Girl in the Universe, The Quiet at the End of the World and The Next Together series, as well as the dyslexia-friendly novella The Starlight Watchmaker and serialised online novel An Unauthorised Fan Treatise. Her upcoming release is The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker. She started writing during secondary school English classes, because she couldn’t stop thinking about a couple who kept falling in love throughout history. She sold the rights to the novel when she was 21, whilst she was still at university. Her books have sold over fifty thousand copies in the UK alone, and been translated into five languages worldwide. Her writing has been described as ‘gripping romantic sci-fi’ by the Wall Street Journal and ‘a strange, witty, compulsively unpredictable read which blows most of its new YA-suspense brethren out of the water’ by Entertainment Weekly. The Last Beginning was named one of the best LGBT-inclusive works for young adults by the Independent. Lauren is a passionate advocate of STEM further education, and all of her books feature female scientists in prominent roles. The Loneliest Girl in the Universe was inspired by a Physics calculation she was assigned at university. The Quiet at the End of the World considers the legacy and evolution of the human race into the far future. Lauren lives in the West Midlands and is an Arts Council grant recipient.  She has written articles for numerous publications, including the GuardianBuzzfeed, Den of GeekThe Toast, and the Children’s Writers and Artist’s Yearbook 2020. She teaches creative writing for Coventry University, WriteMentor, and Writing West Midlands, providing creative writing courses to children through the Spark Young Writers programme.
