Participants include such acclaimed and award-winning authors as: David Almond, Margaret Atwood, Andre Brink, Melvin Burgess, Nadine Gordimer, Eva Hoffman, Alberto Manguel, Meg Rosoff, Nicholas Shakespeare, Ali Smith and Richard Zimler. In "The Children's Hours", these and fifteen other renowned authors explore and celebrate childhood; their tales touching on abuse and rejection, loneliness and love, the joys of friendship and discovery, and the first confused inklings of adolescent love.
