Everything, Everything

Online Event

Free, ticketed

A beautifully compelling romance and coming of age story from one of the most talked about YA novelists. Everything, Everything is an international bestseller and now a major motion picture. 

Two-time number 1 New York Times bestselling author Nicola Yoon joins us to discuss her novels Everything, Everything and The Sun is Also a Star. Maddy is allergic to the world; stepping outside the sterile sanctuary of her home could kill her. But then Olly moves in next door. And just like that, Maddy realises there is more to life than just being alive. You only get one chance at true love, and Maddy is willing to risk everything, everything, to see where it leads. 

Everything, Everything tells us something we will always need to hear, no matter our age: that it’s not the risks of love or heartbreak that might end us. It’s the fear of the pain we might experience along the way that keeps us trapped in our cocoons,” New York Times

Nicola Yoon grew up in Jamaica and Brooklyn, and now lives in Los Angeles. She is the New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything and The Sun is Also a Star. Nicola is a National Book Award finalist, a Michael L. Printz Honor Book recipient and a Coretta Scott King New Talent Award winner. Both her novels have been made into major motion pictures.
