Two epic thriller writers join forces to reveal the inspiration and imagination behind crafting their books in alternate realities.

It’s 20 years since the ground-breaking publication of Malorie Blackman‘s science fiction series Noughts & Crosses. This hugely popular series has been adapted for both stage and screen and finally we have the much-anticipated conclusion – Endgame.

Based on the theory of relativity and the science of time travel, debut novelist Femi Fadugba’s The Upper World is soon to be a major Netflix movie starring Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther, Judas and the Black Messiah).

How did they do it? What was it like to have their works adapted for stage and screen? Join these two remarkable writers in conversation with journalist Sarah Shaffi.

Malorie Blackman is joining the event digitally.
