The beloved children’s author joins us for an online event to talk about past work and her latest novel, The Runaway Girls

Join the much-loved author Dame Jacqueline Wilson online to discover how she started her writing career, find out how she created some of her best-loved characters, and hear about her brand-new book aimed at readers of 10+. 

The Runaway Girls takes readers back to Victorian London and the world so memorably recreated by Dame Jacqueline in her best-selling Hetty Feather. When Lucy Locket runs away from home, she makes friends with the street performer Kitty Fisher. Soon the girls from very different backgrounds find that they can depend on each other to survive, but the streets of Victorian London are dangerous and soon they find themselves under threat from thieves and — even worse — the Workhouse!

Supported by Brighton College Nursery, Pre-Prep & Prep School
