WHEN: Tuesday 2 May 2017
WHERE: War Memorial Library, 2 Queens Drive, Lower Hutt
WHEN: 6.15 for a 6.30pm panel discussion
This is a free event.
Cat Connor’s ‘byte’ books starring FBI Special Agent Ellie Conway have been described as “fast-paced techno-thrillers with black humour, likable protagonists, full of twists and turns”.
TA MacLagan is a Kansas native who immigrated to the bush-clad hills of Wellington. Her series starring a reluctant teenage spy has been called "page-turning, slickly written, and full of intrigue".
LJ Ritchie's LIKE NOBODY'S WATCHING centres on a group of teens who use computer skills to combat bullies, only to be seduced by their new-found power. "An engaging story about the line between heroes and villains, and the abuse of social media".
