Venessa Taylor brings two decades of experience as an inner-city primary school teacher and assistant headteacher to the creation of the Baller Boys series.

Aimed at encouraging young boys to find pleasure in reading, the football-themed stories are written with young readers in mind. Born and raised in London, Venessa continues her legacy and passion as a literacy leader through her creative writing.

This passion has paid off as Venessa’s book Baller Boy was voted The Best Children's Book for The People's Prize.

Lambeth Libraries proudly welcomes Venessa to discuss her book and work as an author.
