Waterstones Liverpool is delighted to welcome Tomi Adeyemi, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Children of Blood and Bone, for an inspirational evening in-conversation with blogger and radio presenter Aliyah Maria.

Tickets: £7.99 includes entry, an exclusive edition of Children of Blood and Bone (with red sprayed edges) plus a signed map and print, or £3 general admission, £2 Waterstones cardholders.

Children of Blood and Bone is an epic fantasy with an eye toward the reality of contemporary racial and socioeconomic power dynamics, drawing upon African history and mythology to tell a story of characters contending with colour, status and they want to be defined in a culture of fear. The highly origi...nal world it depicts – filled with magic, mythical lionesque creatures and beautiful villages built out of sand – manages to be at once fantastical and uncannily reflective of our reality today.

Tomi Adeyemi is a Nigerian-American writer and creative writing coach. After graduating Harvard University with an honors degree in English literature, she received a fellowship that allowed her to study West African mythology and culture in Salvador, Brazil. When she’s not working on her novels or watching “Scandal,” she can be found blogging and teaching creative writing. @tomi_adeyemi
