Following the recent launch of their high-speed book signings in September, Virgin Trains will be hosting Joanna Trollope on a mid-morning train from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston on 21st October.
Joanna Trollope is in Manchester to close The Manchester Literature Festival, in conversation with the BBC’s Jenni Murray at the Royal Exchange on Sunday 20th October.
Joanna Trollope will be signing her new book, Sense and Sensibility, a modern re-working of the Jane Austen classic. The book has been written as part of The Austen Project, a series in which six contemporary authors re-write each of Jane Austen’s six completed works. For keen readers and commuters alike, publisher HarperCollins will give the first ten passengers a free copy of Sense and Sensibility. The book will successively be available to purchase on-board from WHSmith bookseller representatives.
Commenting on the launch of the ‘High Speed Book Signings’, Jim Rowe, Virgin Trains Senior Communications Manager says “Authors routinely travel the country to book signing sessions so we thought why not use the time travelling to sign some more. It is a fact: nowhere else will our authors sign books faster than on our Virgin high speed trains”.
You can book your train tickets at www.VirginTrains.com. Platforms will be announced on the day, so please ensure to arrive in enough time.
