Gayle Forman: I Was Here

Saturday 7th March 2015 2:30pm - 3:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

I regret to inform you that I have had to take my own life. This decision has been a long time coming, and was mine alone to make. I know it will cause you pain, and for that I am sorry, but please know that I needed to end my own pain.

We welcome award-winning YA author Gayle Forman as she introduces her latest novel I Was Here -- a searing and heartfelt depiction of teen suicide, self harm and loss.

The award-winning author of Just One Day and If I Stay (adapted into a Hollywood blockbuster starring Chloë Grace Moretz), Forman began her writing career as a journalist for publications including Elle, Seventeen and Cosmopolitan. Committed to expressing the trials and tribulations of growing up, Forman's latest novel follows 18-year-old Cody as she deals with the shock suicide of her best friend. Full of heartache, mystery and romance, I Was Here is as brave and human a book as you'd expect from this talented and worldly star author.

Taking questions from her fans and influential blogger Lauren Dimmick (My Student Style), this is a rare opportunity to meet Forman as part of her whistlestop UK tour this March.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road
