YALC is only two days away and we’d be lying if we said we were totally chill about it. The awesome happening on the Usborne stand throughout the weekend is really not helping…
Want a sneaky peek?
First up: Are you a feminist?
Excellent. You’re going to need to join in with the ‘What’s a Girl Gotta Do?’ #IamaFeminist campaign. The Usborne stand will be campaign HQ – they’ve got megaphones and clipboards, this is serious business!
Speak up for what you believe in and finish the statement ‘I am a Feminist because…’ in order to win exclusive ‘What’s a Girl Gotta Do?’ lipsticks and #IamaFeminist pin badges.
On Friday at YALC, Usborne will be announcing something incredibly exciting they have planned for 2017, and there’s going to be a big competition too, but we’ve been sworn to secrecy so you’ll just have to head over and find out for yourselves…
And that’s not it! Here’s what else is happening at the Usborne stand:
- ‘Broken Sky’ samplers will be up for grabs, including a sneaky peek of a VERY exciting, secret book…
- Awesome YA authors Kathryn Evans, Emma Haughton, and Sarah Alexander are helping out at the Usborne stand – come say hey!
Are you so excited you keep having to dance it out? Us too.
