I will be visiting the Castlegate Bookshop, on Knaresborough's Market Place, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on 24 November for a festive signing of my new medieval novel, The Falcon with a Virgin's Face. Gary tells me he might have one or two Arams still left in stock for those who missed out the first time around.
Harrogate Library have invited me to give a talk on Eugene Aram. Aram was a schoolteacher and linguistic scholar acclaimed for his insistence that Celtic was an important foundation of the English language. He was tried and hanged in York in 1759 for the murder of Daniel Clark, a young Knaresborough shoemaker.
Knaresborough Historical Society have kindly invited me to speak to them on the same subject in May of next year.
