February 17, 2012
Renowned author Joanna Trollope paid a visit to Wokingham Library to discuss her new novel with a sell-out audience.
Fans of the family drama and romance author packed into the library in Denmark Street on Wednesday, February 8, to hear Ms Trollope discuss her work and new novel The Soldier’s Wife.
The book was released at the beginning of this month and follows a British Army Major as he returns from a six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan to his wife and daughter.
The novel looks at the home lives of the modern Army.
Heather Dyson, reader development officer for Wokingham Borough Council, said: “The event was fully booked so we had more than 60 people in the library.
“She was promoting her new novel so she talked about how she had come to write it and read a few extracts.
“She then answered some questions from the audience before people had the chance to buy copies of the book and get them signed."
She added: “Afterwards everyone enjoyed some afternoon tea.
“It went very well.”
The library will host a visit from popular novelist Lesley Pearse on Thursday, March 22, at 8pm. Entry is £3.
