Bestselling novelist Amanda Prowse knew how to resolve a fictional family crisis. But then her son, Josiah, came to her with a real one. In this free event, presented by The Reading Agency and Libraries Connected, Amanda and Josiah are joined by writer, presenter and activist, Natasha Devon MBE, a trustee of Student Minds and patron of No Panic, to discuss their deeply personal story and the mental health crisis affecting young people today.
Amanda and Josh will read from their book, The Boy Between (published by Little A on 1 November 2020) before discussing their story, and the things they have learnt, with Natasha Devon. An audience Q&A will follow. The book will be available to buy during the event.
