Former Children’s Laureate Dame Jacqueline Wilson has written some of our best-loved children's books, creating memorable characters like Tracy Beaker and Hetty Feather.

She has sold more than 40 million books in the UK alone and tackled some surprisingly adult themes, like adoption, divorce and mental illness. She tries to speak to children directly about real issues.

The event will be followed by an audience Q&A session
