Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman discusses her books with Shami Chakrabarti, Chancellor of Oxford Brookes University and director of Liberty, in a wide-ranging and stimulating session, including a special look at human rights in children’s books.

Blackman has written more than 50 books and is widely regarded as one of the best and most imaginative writers of fiction for children and young people. She has won many awards including the Red House Children’s Book Award and the Fantastic Fiction Award. She is author of the highly acclaimed Noughts and Crosses series of young adult novels.

Chakrabarti has been director of the civil liberties organisation Liberty for ten years. She qualified as a lawyer before working as a barrister for the Home Office. She is a regular panellist on BBC’s Question Time and was a panel member on the Leveson Inquiry into the Press.
