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:
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.
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).
