Katie Piper is a best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, TV presenter and charity campaigner. Katie made the decision to share her story in a remarkable film for the Cutting Edge strand on Channel 4 called 'Katie: My Beautiful Face' which was watched by over 3.5 million viewers and nominated for Best Single Documentary at the BAFTA Television Awards in 2010.
In 2009 she set up a charity The Katie Piper Foundation to help people with burns and scars to reconnect with their lives and their communities. The charity's vision is a world where scars do not limit a person's function, social inclusion or sense of well-being.
Katie has also written six books, the most recent, published in December 2016, ‘Confidence: The Secret’, quickly became a #1 Bestseller on Amazon. Katie’s sixth book ‘From Mother To Daughter’ is released this year.
Katie received a special recognition award at The Pride of Britain Awards in London. In 2014 Katie had a beautiful baby girl and her second baby girl at the end of 2017.
At the Guernsey Literary Festival, Katie will be in conversation with James Partridge (OBE), founder and advisor of the charity Changing Faces.
