Jen Campbell, Bryony Gordon & Ella McLeod: Revisiting Rapunzel image

In Let Down Your Hair, bestselling author and journalist Bryony Gordon draws on her experiences of alopecia to retell the story of Rapunzel. In Rapunzella, Or, Don’t Touch My Hair, Ella McLeod merges poetry and prose in a lyrical genre-bending retelling of Rapunzel.
Author and fairy tale expert Jen Campbell joins these YA authors to discuss with chair Nadine Aisha Jassat why they were drawn to the story and how it feels to rewrite the narrative.
