Poetry in Derby

April was a busy month, beginning with a speaking engagement in Rotherham on 11th on behalf of the Alzheimers Society, followed by a poetry reading at Derby University on 18th.

History Lesson at Dronfield Library!

Tom will be at Dronfield Library on Thursday May 8th, initially he says, "to learn something from the local history group" - but we suspect he may also be showing over two hundred slides of the Peak District and talking about his latest book, `Northern Derbyshire - Snapshots in Time'. Rumour also has it that he will be displaying a collection of rare historic artifacts - and giving away copies of his books! The talk commences at 10-30am.

On Friday May 16th Tom will be reading poetry at Old Whittington, and speaking at the celebrations to mark the 92nd birthday of lifelong Whittington resident, Mrs. Nellie Bramley.
