Event description

Description

Author Stanley Underhill, a resident of Charterhouse in Islington, gives an illustrated talk about his recent autobiography Coming out of the Black Country.

This is a true and inspiring story of about a man born in the 1920s into poverty and who, later, discovered himself to be a homosexual.

Stanley describes his struggle to educate himself, and to come to terms with his unwanted sexual orientation. All against a background of ignorance, homophobia and condemnation by the State and Church, while he also battled with depression.

Come and listen to Stanley’s story of how, ultimately, he finds his true self.


Stanley will be signing copies of his book after the talk. Special discount for one night only.

Talk facilitated by Islington Library and Heritage Service in partnership with Islington's Pride.
