Another event has been added to the line-up for Weston-super-Mare’s first literature festival.

A former advisor to Tony Blair will be among the writers talking about switching from young adult fiction to adult fiction.

Weston Town Council has organised the festival, which will take place at the museum, Blakehay Theatre and The Stable, from February 22 to March 1.

MORE: Who will be taking part in the festival?

One of the speakers at the newly-announced event will be Jo Nadin who worked for the former Labour Prime Minister and has written more than 70 books since leaving politics.

She will speak alongside newspaper reporter Christi Daugherty, Weston fiction writer CJ Skuse and Rachel Ward at Weston Museum on February 23 at 1pm.

Rachel was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.
