NOBODY FREE TILL EVERYBODY FREE

Join Lambeth Libraries for the launch of the brand-new novel from Guardian Award-winning author Alex Wheatle.

Cane Warriors is a deeply compelling story of courage, brotherhood and hope, it follows the true-life slave rebellion known as Tacky’s War in 18th century Jamaica through the eyes of one boy.

Alex is the author of several acclaimed novels, many of them inspired by experiences from his childhood. He has been longlisted for the Carnegie Medal, won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, and was awarded an MBE for services to literature.

Alex’s life will be featured in part of Steve McQueen’s Small Axe series for the BBC (to be aired Autumn 2020) and his Crongton books are being adapted into a TV series. Catch Alex while you can!
