This weekend saw bestselling author, Simon Scarrow, appear at Thomson’s 5T Grand Hotel President hotel in Sorrento. The appearance was the fifth ‘An Audience With…’ event hosted by Thomson Gold this summer which has seen several popular authors from Headline Publishing appear across a selection of holiday resorts.

Some of the biggest names in popular fiction, including Victoria Hislop, Lyn Andrews, Sheila O’Flanagan, Penny Vincenzi and now Simon Scarrow, have jetted out to some of the most popular European destinations over the summer to meet guests and talk about their novels.

Simon Scarrow, renowned for bringing history to life in his best-selling Roman novels, appeared at the 5T Grand Hotel President in Sorrento over the weekend of 4th and 5th September. He also delivered an ‘Insight Talk’ on Pompeii, Herculaneum and Roman Life which was a huge success amongst the guests.

To round off the tour, chick-lit favourite Jill Mansell, will be appearing for three dates in Majorca at the 4T Hotel Picafort Park on 14th September, the 4T Hotel Levante Park on 15th September and the 4T Grupotel Playa Camp de Mar on 16th September.

These exclusive Thomson Gold ‘An Audience with…’ events provide a unique setting for customers to meet best-selling novelists fact to face, ask questions and buy signed copies of the books in resort.

Due to popular demand, Thomson is working with Headline to bring even more top authors to holiday resorts for summer 2011.
