Malorie Blackman: British Library exhibition celebrates author’s career

News Correspondent

Best known for her dystopian young adults series Noughts and Crosses, the former Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman has become the first living author to have an exhibition of her life and work at the British Library.

Blackman’s cultural impact extends beyond the literary scene, with British artists such as Stormzy calling her his ‘childhood hero’ and featuring her in his music videos – introducing the author to a whole new audience.

Ayshah Tull met her as she saw the exhibition for the very first time.
