What do you do when your brother says he’s not your brother at all, and that he thinks he’s actually . . . your sister? Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to hear internationallybestselling author John Boyne discuss his new novel for young adults with our Teen Curators, students from The King’s Hospital School, Dublin. Written with his trademark wit and empathy, My Brother’s Name is Jessica is a stunning and timely story of gender identity and family life.

‘I hope My Brother’s Name is Jessica will enlighten young readers on the bravery of transgender youth and make them understand that this is just another facet of human nature that can be celebrated.’ John Boyne
