Harris Joins Society of Authors Board as Chair

Novelist Joanne Harris has been elected chair of the Society of Authors’ management committee, the U.K. organization's member-elected board of directors and charity trustees, at their January 2020 meeting. The position has been held since 2016 by David Donachie, who has now come to the end of his second two-year term. The committee meets six times a year to govern the direction of the SoA., and is comprised of 12 elected members, alongside the chairs of professional groups—including the Translators Association and the Children’s Writers & Illustrators Group—who are responsible for setting the strategy and policies of the organization.
