2pm: Save Blackheath Library

As you’ve probably already seen, today (Saturday) there will be a day of protests across the country against the proposed library closures. Lewisham Council want to close Blackheath Village Library, so please show your support. Come and read extracts from your favourite book at 2pm. The following authors and local people will be attending:

Neil Rhind
The spectacularly good writer of Blackheath Village and Environs, occasional commenter to this blog, and all round expert on anything to do with Blackheath’s history. To be honest, if you’re living in Blackheath, it’s worth attending just to hear him speak. This blog wouldn’t be what it is without his books as a reference-point.

Lucy Mangan
Columnist for The Guardian, and writer of many books, including The Reluctant Bride: One Woman’s Journey (Kicking and Screaming) Down the Aisle, (extracts of which made me laugh as I was nervously preparing to marry Mrs Bugle).

Blake Morrison
Prolific author, literary editor of both The Observer and the Independent on Sunday.  His latest book is The Last Weekend.

Lindsey Davis
Lindsey Davis – Writer of historic novels, titles include Rebels and Traitors, set around the English Civil War, and Nemesis, an Ancient Roman detective series. Which sounds like fun!

Father Nicholas, from All Saints
The vicar from the big pointy church on the heath. Not this.
