BARNSLEY author Milly Johnson will appear at the next 'Audience With' event this summer.

Milly is the second local celebrity to take part in a new series of ‘Audience With’ events being organised by Script Media Group, We Are Barnsley and the Barnsley Chronicle - following an 'Audience With Joann Fletcher.'

Milly will speak candidly about her career and achievements so far.

She plans to use the event to talk about growing up in Barnsley; how she discovered her love of writing and how she managed to achieve success as an author.

Fans will also get the chance to put their questions to her in a Q and A session at the end of the evening, as well as purchase a signed copy of Milly's new book 'Sunshine Over Wildflower Cottage.'

An Audience With Milly Johnson will be at the Academy Theatre, Birdwell, Barnsley, on . For ticket details, call 01226 734630 or call into the Chronicle reception on Church Street, Barnsley.
