Jacqueline Wilson describes her prolific writing career as part of Literary Leicester

All public tickets have been allocated for this event

Former Children's Laureate and Tracy Beaker creator Jacqueline Wilson will visit Leicester's De Montfort Hall this month as part of our University's annual celebration of the written word.

‘An Afternoon with Jacqueline Wilson’ will welcome hundreds of fans to the historic city centre venue on Saturday 19 November - and more tickets have been made available.

The event was scheduled to take place at the University's main campus on University Road, but after selling out in just ten days, and with requests for tickets continuing to flood in, it was moved to De Montfort Hall (DMH), in Granville Road, which can cater for up to 1,800 people.

Spaces are still available through the Literary Leicester ticketing site.

Jacqueline will read from her new book, Clover Moon, which introduces a brand new Victorian heroine.

The hour-long event, suitable for ages 7+, will also include tales about the books that inspired her as a child.

Literary Leicester, now in its ninth year, runs between Wednesday 16 November to Saturday 19 November. More information about the Festival is available here.
