Visit the Museum of London Docklands for a special talk and Q&A with renowned children’s author Jacqueline Wilson.
As one of the UK’s most well-known and loved writers of stories for children, Jacqueline Wilson needs no introduction. She has written more than 100 books since 1969, and some of her characters, like Tracy Beaker, have become television hits after being adapted from her novels.
Jacqueline will be discussing Wave Me Goodbye, her first novel set during World War Two. The story follows ten year-old Shirley, an East End girl who is evacuated from London to the countryside at the outbreak of the war, and finds herself living a very different life with the reclusive Mrs. Waverley.
After her 45-minute talk, there will be an opportunity to ask Jacqueline questions, and if you’re lucky, she may even sign copies of the book! The new paperback edition of Wave Me Goodbye will be available to purchase on the day, as well as other Jacqueline Wilson books and merchandise.
