UK train operator Virgin Trains could be starting an audience-focusing trend by hosting author signings in an altogether original environment. The train company is planning a series of high speed on-board book signings. Starting on the west coast route on 14 September with Scandi-crime author Jo Nesbø signing his new Harry Hole thriller Police, Virgin are promising author events this autumn at up to 125 miles an hour between London and Glasgow. The signings will be announced over train’s speaker system, and travellers will be invited to buy a book before meeting the author to have it signed. Also on the autumn line up are Joanna Trollope with her latest, The Soldier’s Wife, and Ruby Wax signing Sane New World: Taming the Mind.
