Event presented by Hexham Book Festival
To celebrate the publication of the 2017 Programme, Hexham Book Festival welcomes one of the UK’s favourite novelists, Joanna Trollope, to the Queen’s Hall to talk about her latest book, City of Friends.
Appointed an OBE in 1996, Joanna is the author of many highly acclaimed and bestselling novels. She is a trustee of the National Literacy Trust and has chaired the Whitbread and Orange Awards, as well as being a judge of many other literature prizes. In 2014 she updated Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility as the opening novel in the Austen Project.
