FULLY BOOKED: Andrew Lanyon’s book launch: ‘Rabelais and Cervantes on the Road to Cornwall’

23/09/2023 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

This event is now fully booked. Please get in touch if you wish to add your name to the waiting list.

Join us for the launch of Andrew Lanyon’s new book, ‘Rabelais and Cervantes on the Road to Cornwall’.

On Saturday 23rd September from 2.30-3.30, Andrew Lanyon, local writer, painter, photographer & film-maker, will launch his latest book ‘Rabelais and Cervantes on the Road to Cornwall’, and try to explain what on earth he hoped to achieve by bringing those literary giants to Cornwall in 1790 – after they were both dead!

Snacks will be provided by the Singing Rooster café at this get-together, and copies of Andrew’s book will be on sale.

A short extract from the book is up on Andrew’s YouTube site, entitled ‘The Horse Has the Last Word’, which you can view here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYKRLa5Vp4k

We’ll also celebrate and acknowledge Andrew’s generous and wonderful donation of copies of all of his books to the Library.

As this event is a book launch and get-together, tickets won’t be via a ballot this time. Instead we’ll allocate places on a first come, first served basis, so book early!
