Prestfelde School, London Road, Shrewsbury SY2 6NZ
Join Dame Jacqueline Wilson, one of Britain’s most outstanding writers for young readers to hear her talk about her life, her work and how she has crafted her contemporary stories featuring feisty characters like the enduring Tracy Beaker. Hear how she has also used historical settings for many of her recent books such as Hetty Feather and Clover Moon. Opal Plumstead was her 100th book and My Mum Tracy Beaker her 109th.
There will be no book signing after the talk, but printed bookplates with Jacqueline’s signature on will be available from the Waterstones Shrewsbury desk at this event. (You can also catch up with Jacqueline in The Square this afternoon when she will be cutting Bookfest’s 21st Birthday cake.)
Please park at Shropshire Council Shirehall staff car park, London Road, SY2 6ND
