Holly Smale spent two years as a teenage catwalk model before her books about school-geek-turned-model Harriet Manners propelled her to stardom as an author. Come and hear Smale talk about her geek-but-chic heroine, now facing trials and tribulations as a sixth former in the new book Geek Girl All That Glitters, and find out about Smale’s own journey to becoming an author.

Geek Girl was the number one bestselling work of young adult fiction in the UK in 2013. It won the teen and young adult category of the Waterstone’s Children’s Book prize and was shortlisted for several other awards, including the Roald Dahl Funny prize.

Smale talks to Geraldine Brennan, a journalist specialising in children’s books and education.
