Fresh from the Jasmine Allen to talk about her new book......... "The Reinvention Of Ivy Brown". On Thursday 13 November, Roberta visited Wallsend District Library as part of the Daily Telegraph's Big Book Club promotion. 100 fans came and listened, asked questions, bought the book, got autographs and photographs and had a delicious literary lunch. Roberta was fabulously gracious, witty and delightful. She was happy to satisfy fans curious about her time on The Bill as well as answering questions about being a writer.
