The USA, shortly before the beginning of the Civil War in 1861: Samuel lives in an orphanage with his younger brother Joshua. When Joshua makes a big mistake, Samuel takes the blame … and ends up as a slave on a plantation. Nobody there cares that Samuel can read and write. But as the Civil War moves closer and closer, a revolt breaks out on the plantation, and Samuel plays a vital role … MY NAME’S NOT FRIDAY was nominated for the Children’s Fiction Prize (2015) and the Carnegie Medal (2016) and discusses the fight for human rights and dignity. Jon Walter is a first-time guest at the ilb and will be presenting MY NAME’S NOT FRIDAY for the first time in Germany. “A rich, thought-provoking, and deeply satisfying book” (Publishers Weekly).
