Joanna Trollope, Carina Diedericks-Hugo and Sophia Kapp in conversation with Hannelie Booyens.
Joanna is known for speaking her mind about the vapid heroines found in popular fiction for women. Why do none of them choose a career above having a family and children? Where are the popular stories that show women in the kinds of relationships that we have in real life? She joins a panel of three successful local female authors.
