Event description

Description

Come along to Halton Lea Library, Runcorn, to hear author David Hewitt talk about his latest book about the tragic story of a World War I soldier. David's book is the ‘secret history’ of Joseph Blackburn, a man who didn’t want to go to war – but was forced to by a Westminster tribunal and who died on the Western Front. Set in Thornton Cleveleys, this compelling read explores the moral and legal complexities of Joseph’s story. Using the original source material of newspaper articles and legal records, David has written a thrilling and thought provoking account of Joseph’s forgotten story and raises an interesting question – if you put a man in harm’s way then realise you made a mistake, shouldn’t you at least try to make amends?

Copies of Joseph, 1917 will be available to purchase on the evening.

Ticket price includes refreshments. Free parking is available in the adjoining shopping centre.
