Despite the best efforts of the motorway network and a problematic projector lead, David joined us one Monday in April to share Five Things You (Almost Certainly) Didn’t Know About the Spanish Civil War. The stories, including tales about the International Brigade’s local links, and Franco’s unbelievable decision to create a tourist trail through the Spanish battlefields while the war raged on, brought the era into a refreshing and entertaining new light.
He also very kindly shared sangria and olives with the audience, to help us experience the true flavour of Spain.
David discovered the stories while researching his Jack Telford novels; the first of which, The Assassin’s Mark, is now available to borrow from Bury Libraries and its sequel, Until the Curtain Falls, was published in May 2017. David has kindly donated copies of four of his novels for Bury Libraries stock, so keep an eye out for them. They are: The Song-Sayer’s Lament, The Kraals of Ulundi and The Last Campaign of Marianne Tambour.
Thank you David, it was a great evening & we hope to see you again soon!
