Childrens Book Illustrations John Ericson Tuesday 10 October 2017

At  the Public Hall, West Street, Liskeard, PL14 6BW. Meet at 6.45 for coffee/tea/wine and conversation. AGM at 7.15. The talk starts at 7.30pm and ends at about 9pm.

Witty and stylish nostalgia about those images we have retained from the books we read as children — of Tigger, Toad, Black Beauty, Treasure Island and many more; also a peek at the lives of the authors who created them.
