Teen Author Event with Adiba Jaigirdar

Wednesday 17 February, 11am-12pm

Author Adiba Jaigirdar talks about her experiences as a writer and her fantastic debut novel The Henna Wars, a heart-warming, queer love story for young adults.

Adiba Jaigirdar is a stunning new voice in young adult fiction, writing uplifting, authentic stories from a Bengali-Irish perspective. All of her writing is aided by tea, and a healthy dose of Janelle MonĂ¡e and Hayley Kiyoko. When not writing, she can be found ranting about the ills of colonialism, playing video games, and expanding her overflowing lipstick collection. She can be found at adibajaigirdar.com or @adiba_j on Twitter and @dibs_j on Instagram
