An Afternoon with Dame Jacqueline Wilson

Images from the Special Sunday Session: An Afternoon with Dame Jacqueline Wilson which took place on Sunday 15 November 2015. Families gathered at the Gallery to listen to Jacqueline Wilson talk about how she started her writing career and how she created some of her best-loved characters. Families also had the opportunity to find out which portraits from the Collection inspire her, take a photograph with her and have their books exclusively signed.
