Children’s Laureate, Malorie Blackman, named as UK’s most influential black figure

According to a report from BBC Entertainment and Arts news online, author Malorie Blackman has topped publishing company Powerful Media’s annual Powerlist, which also included athlete Mo Farah and media agency boss Karen Blackett.
Malorie Blackman began her career as a computer programmer and TV scriptwriter before writing her first book, as she believed that there was a lack of children's stories featuring black characters.

She has now written more than 60 books, including Noughts and Crosses, Pig-Heart Boy, Hacker and Cloud-Busting.  We have a selection of her books in both the Discovery and War Memorial Libraries, including her new book Trust Me.
