Author Talks

KAC_LogoIn partnership with Waterstone’s we will be hosting talks by leading authors and famous celebrities. Shelley, the manager at Waterstone’s is currently negotiating with publishers to bring us some more exciting book launches and author talks

Past Events

Jacqueline Wilson 6th March 2010 Our first event as Kettering Arts Centre, a queue waiting outside more than an hour before, and a Queen soundtrack (as requested by Dame Jacqueline) to build the atmosphere and anticipation beforehand. And so it began, the audience was rapt as the new book “Little Darlings” was launched, loads of questions were asked, mainly about Tracy Beaker (of course) and how Jacqueline gets her ideas and inspiration. A fantastic first event and Shelley from Waterstone’s and her team went home very happy (and very tired).  Click here for more.

Jeremy Strong 5th June 2010 Another author event in partnership with Kettering Waterstone’s, saw the launch of two new books, “Batpants” and “We want to be on the Telly”, and a very funny talk by Jeremy. Click here for more.

Philippa Gregory 20th August 2010 In partnership with Waterstone’s, Kettering, the world-wide best-selling author of, amongst many historical novels, “The Other Boleyn Girl”, launched the second of her books about the powerful women of the War of the Roses, “The Red Queen”. A great talk, followed by an even more eye-opening question and answer session in which Philippa told us exactly what she thinks of David Starkey! Click here for more.
