Kathleen writes "The National Library for the Blind (NLB) is teaming up with top authors in an exciting charity fundraising auction which will offer book lovers the chance to bid for an opportunity to have tea with their favourite author. The event will take place at the Guardian Hay Festival.
Jacqueline Wilson is the first author to offer her timeâ€¦â€¦
You and a friend could be having tea and cakes with Jacqueline Wilson at 4pm on Thursday 2 June at a lovely location in the centre of Hay-on-Wye, Wales.
Jacqueline Wilson has sold over 20 million books in the UK alone. A recent MORI poll puts her as English childrenâ€™s favourite childrenâ€™s author. Her books have won numerous awards and several, including â€˜Tracy Beakerâ€™, have been turned into television programmes. Four of her books were in the BBCâ€™s top 100 books for the Big Read: â€˜Double Actâ€™, â€˜Girls in Loveâ€™, â€˜Vicky Angelâ€™ and â€˜The Story of Tracy Beakerâ€™."
