entertaining. She will read excerpts from it and tell us the stories of
the soldiers involved. You will have the opportunity to ask her
All are welcome. The event is free but donations are welcome and

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 dohave
parking permits for event days, so email us before an event at the
library to firstname.lastname@example.org if
you will need one, or just drop in to collect one.
