Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan found fame as Britain’s foremost daytime TV duo, and have since become the nation’s favourite book-loving couple.

In this session Richard & Judy meet with their pick of Festival authors for a live Book Club session.

The Panellists:

Kevin Kwan is the author of Crazy Rich Asians and its sequels China Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems – a satire of Singapore’s uber-wealthy that has been a global hit with readers.

Kate Mosse’s Labyrinth was a standout title in the strong 2006 lineup for the Richard & Judy Book Club and picked up a British Book Award that year. She is working on a new series, the Burning Chambers Trilogy.

Shari Lapena’s gripping domestic thriller The Couple Next Door was a Richard & Judy pick in 2017 and bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic; her new book is A Stranger in the House.
