And the following week on October 17th at the same library, another Try Reading Event though this time starting at 2 p.m., I will be talking about how Rugby League and Northern working class humour at work together inspired me to write five South Lancashire based novels.
www.geofflee.net for news of my novels, One Winter, One Spring, One Summer, One Autumn and Two Seasons. All are written against a strong Rugby League background, set in South Lancashire and inspired by the old saying about work: "They could write a book about this place. It would be a best seller".
