Telling Tales Festival

Royal Botanical Gardens

Creative Workshop Stage

Age / Grade 14-18 / Grades 9+

Deborah Falaye is a Nigerian Canadian young adult author who grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. When she’s not writing about fierce black girls with badass magic, she can be found obsessing over all things reality TV. Blood Scion tells of a young girl with forbidden powers who must free her oppressed people in this richly layered, gripping epic fantasy, inspired by Yoruba-Nigerian mythology.

This workshop is best suited for keen writers in the senior grades. All materials will be provided. After the session, purchase a copy of Blood Scion at Different Drummer Books (on-site), and Deborah will sign it at the nearby Autograph Tent, beginning at 3:15PM
