Virgin Trains ‘High Speed’ book signing with Joanna Trollope

Virgin Trains is pleased to announce their second ‘High-Speed Book Signing’ with illustrious author Joanna Trollope. To accompany the launch of her new novel Sense and Sensibility Joanna Trollope, OBE and author of seventeen highly-acclaimed bestselling novels, will be signing her book on-board Virgin Trains on 21st October from Manchester to London.

Following the successful 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, with the exact time to be confirmed shortly on the Virgin Trains Facebook page. 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 hotly-anticipated 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.

If you are travelling for business, on a family day out, or you simply want to be a part of this one-off experience then you can book your train tickets at Platforms will be announced on the day, so please ensure to arrive in enough time.

Jim Rowe, Virgin Trains’ Interim Communications Director says: “We were delighted with the wonderful reaction our customers gave to the first High-Speed Book Signing back in September. At Virgin Trains we think you can never get enough of a good thing, so we hope our customers will enjoy meeting Joanna Trollope and getting their copy of her book signed while travelling in style and comfort.”
