J B MORRISON BACK AT BOOKSELLER CROW
Mr J.B. Morrison returns to Bookseller Crow with beloved Frank Derrick.
Last year’s best selling book at Bookseller Crow, by a country mile, was The Extra Ordinary Life of Frank Derrick, aged 81, so we thought you lot would be eager to come and celebrate the publication of Frank Derrick’s Holiday of a Lifetime.
Mr Jim Bob himself will be along to read from the newest Frank Derrick adventure on Thursday 4th June. .
We’re so thrilled to be hosting this party, that we’ve made a special offer: both books – signed first editions – for just £13.98. They’re practically walking out of the door. (Source: Bookseller Crow website)
FROM BOREHAMWOOD TO HOLLYWOOD
From Borehamwood to Hollywood: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Elstree is being screened at the Cinema Museum on Thursday 11th Jun at 7.30pm.
The 2014 film tells the story of 100 years of filmmaking in Elstree and Borehamwood – from the opening of the very first studio in Borehamwood and the silent era, to Britain’s first “all-talkie” film, the post-war years and the boom in production in both film and television in the 50s and 60s, as well as the losses of major studios and the fight to save Elstree Studios from demolition.
The 90-minute documentary is narrated by Barbara Windsor, with additional linking material from film historian Paul Welsh MBE, and was directed by Howard Berry. Doors open at 6.30pm. (Source: Cinema Museum)
