YA After Hours

Join us at Kino for YA After Hours – with special guests, goody bags, chitchat, YA smackdown, games, prizes and trivia!

It will be an evening not to be missed!

Meet contemporary Oz YA authors Emily Gale, Kate Hendrick and Gabrielle Reid, who will be here to chat about their new and forthcoming books! Emily’s new book, I am Out with the Lanterns is a beautiful novel about friendship, first love and the power of art to change lives. Kate’s new book The Finder is a gentle and funny novel about two misfits who embark on a road trip of a lifetime. And Gabrielle Reid’s debut novel The Things We Can’t Undo is about consent, the choices we make and the impact we have on other people. Hear them discuss their books, Oz YA, and their YA influences.

Do you have a favourite YA book that you MUST evangelise about? Well, we want to hear about it! Write us a song, create a poem, or just give us a passionate rant! The person who most convinces us to read their favourite book wins a prize!

And then…put a team together – the best YA brains on the planet – and compete to be the YA trivia champions! If you’ve joined us before for Harry Potter trivia, you know this thing gets real! Again – prizes, prizes, prizes! Oh and snacks! There’ll be snacks to keep you wired and firing on all YA cylinders!
