Bob McBurney celebrates a maverick life with the publication of his memoir ‘Nearly 79. Laughter and Loss’. A remarkable record of accidents of birth and place and their consequences, much of it set in West Yorkshire. It is full of fascinating stories written with wisdom and humour. Bob will be interviewed by writer James Nash on the origins and writing of the book and the journey he made from diary to publication. There will be readings and the opportunity for questions from the audience.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

This is a FREE event, but booking is essential.
