Patrick Ness Asks Us to Shout

I’m not to going to say too much about this, as Patrick says it so well himself. If you love books, you should listen to this; it’s his speech on winning the Carnegie medal for ‘Monsters of Men’ (an excellent conclusion to a brilliant trilogy – I’ll get to posting something on it later).
He’s an excellent speaker, and his speech is an angry but articulate attack on politicians who say they value young people’s desire and ability to read, but then take away the means for those young people to do it. Have a listen, and join him in his pissed-offness.
