  • Flexible and digitised, our libraries have a bright future

    19th December 2014

    I was part of the Sieghart review panel into the future of our public libraries which was commissioned by the government. This review was published on 18th December and has been hailed as the last chance to halt the ongoing decline in our library services. I believe some of the important recommendations don't involve spending the trillions the country hasn't got in the first place, and which will improve the lives and futures of a huge proportion of the population. Fast. Click read more in my article in the Telegraph today.

  • Extract from Review by Gloucestershire Echo

    9th October 2014

    Joanna appeared at the Cheltenham Literary Festival to join respected authors and musicians paid tribute to this year’s Big Read, Cider with Rosie, at Cheltenham Literature Festival.

    Lee devotees, bestselling author Joanna Trollope, children’s author Michael Morpurgo, singer and broadcaster Cerys Matthews and former drummer with Genesis, now travel writer, Chris Stewart spoke about why this nostalgic memoir of childhood, set in Slad near Stroud, has remained a classic.

    “I was born in Gloucestershire and was introduced to Cider with Rosie, which is very much a coming of age book, at 21 by my best friend. The hard back copy had illustrations by John Ward and it was love at first sight.

    It’s a gilded look at the past written by a poet which is luscious and sensual, you can almost feel, taste and smell the community which is seen through a honeyed lens but I feel it is a tiny bit over-written. Click Here to Read More...
