About the event

The bestselling author talks about her latest novel In Little Stars, a modern-day reimagining of Romeo and Juliet. Based in West Yorkshire, Linda Green is the author of 11 novels, which have sold over 1.4 million copies.

Two families divided by hate. A love that will not die. Sylvie and Donna travel on the same train to work each day but have never spoken. Their families are on different sides of the bitter Brexit divide, although the tensions and arguments at home give them much in common.

What they don’t know is that their eldest children, Rachid and Jodie, are about to meet for the first time and fall in love. Aware that neither family will approve, the teenagers vow to keep their romance a secret. But as Sylvie’s family feel increasingly unwelcome in England, a desire for a better life threatens Rachid and Jodie’s relationship. Can their love unite their families – or will it end in tragedy?

Linda Green is the bestselling author of 11 novels, which have sold more than 1.4 million copies in the UK, with foreign rights sold in 15 territories. Her novel, One Moment, was a Radio 2 Book Club pick, and The Last Thing She Told Me was a Richard and Judy Book Club selection. Linda is also a creative writing tutor and an award-winning journalist who has written for The Guardian and The Big Issue, and has appeared on Newsnight, Radio 5 Live, Radio Four’s Woman’s Hour and BBC News.  She lives in West Yorkshire with her husband, teenage son, cat Hugo and two rescue guinea pigs.
