Laura Wood is a best-selling 'Young Adult' author; her latest novel, A Snowfall of Silver, is currently #1 in Amazon UK's list of art-related fiction for Young Adults.
And what has this got to do with Richmond's Georgian Theatre Royal..?
It's the fact that Laura's heroine, eighteen-year-old Freya Trevelyan, has run away from her home in Cornwall to follow her dream of becoming an actress, and - yes, you can guess where her dream takes her!
Our photo shows Jaime Gilpin, a member of The Georgian Theatre Royal Youth Theatre, reading her copy of the new book on stage.
A Snowfall of Silver is a delightful coming-of-age romance. Priced at £7.99, it can be obtained from any good bookshop - preferably your local independent!
