Stan gives illustrated talk

A Northumberland author will be hosting a talk at an Alnwick bookshop.

Stan Beckensall, author of Place Names and Field Names of Northumberland, will be presenting the event at Barter Books on Monday, October 17, at 7.30pm.

He will be giving an illustrated talk based on one of his most popular books, one that was first published when Stan was senior lecturer in English at Alnwick College of Education and reprinted this year in a new revised edition.

Tickets cost £5 from the shop or on 01665 604888.
