Seven Stories: Launching Saturday 15 October 2011 - Jacqueline Wilson Exhibition

| No Comments

Launching Saturday 15 October 2011

"I'm so pleased and proud that Seven Stories are having a special exhibition all about me. It's been extraordinary delving into basements and garages and finding long forgotten childhood stories and old manuscripts and mementos. I've been writing all my life but it was only when I met my dear friend Nick that my career really took off. I'm so lucky to have Nick illustrate my books. The exhibition starts with a replica of my childhood bedroom where I read and wrote and daydreamed - and ends with a mock-up of my room now, where I still read and write and daydream." Jacqueline Wilson

This is an exclusive chance to find out about Jacqueline Wilson, in the first ever exhibition dedicated to the best selling author. Let Jacqueline guide you through a journey of her favourite stories, characters, daydreams and working process. We'll show you how your favourite characters began including Tracy Beaker, Hetty Feather and The Illustrated Mum, from ideas to text and working with illustrator Nick Sharratt to bring her stories to life. Be inspired to create your own stories, sit and daydream or join Jacky's HUGE fan base from all over the world.
