Two of the UK’s bestselling female writers – Joanna Trollope OBE and Dame Jacqueline Wilson OBE – will be spotlighted as part of this year’s Author of the Day programme. The two authors were announced today alongside David Baldacci, who will join the fair as a special guest.

Every year, the Author of the Day brings some of the most acclaimed, successful writers working today, showcasing their work and celebrating their achievements.
