A talk with Shrabani Basu, local author of the book 'For King and Another Country'

on Tuesday 14th November, 7pm

Dear Library supporter,

We are delighted to welcome back our local author and historian Shrabani Basu, to talk about her book, 'For King and Another Country, Indian Soldiers on the Western Front 1914-18' .  We have heard Shrabani talk about her other books, and she is always very entertaining. She will read excerpts from it and tell us the stories of the soldiers involved. You will have the opportunity to ask her questions.

All are welcome.  The event is free but donations are welcome and are needed to maintain the work of the library.  

Pub Quizzes
A reminder that our next Pub Quiz is this Monday, 6th November at the Preston Pub.  Come at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.  Tickets £5 on the day.  Raffle [donations of prizes always welcome].  All welcome. The quiz after that will be on Monday 4th December.

How to find the library:
We have moved to Ashley Gardens, which is off Preston Road.  Scroll down for a map.  We are at the end of the cul-de-sac through the gate on the left. There is no car park, so if you are driving, please park on Preston Road. For Wembley Stadium event days, parking restrictions apply.  We do have parking permits for event days, so email us before an event at the library to  if you will need one, or just drop in to collect one.
