On Tuesday, I met the Mayor and Mayoress of Bolton for tea and a chat. It was a fantastic experience and I am really honoured to have been invited. Zoe and I got a tour of the Town Hall, which was fantastic, and we chatted for over an hour about all kinds of things. As it turns out, the Mayor is an even bigger history buff than we are, so we had a long talk about the effects of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest on European history.
Before we left, I presented the Mayor with signed copies of ‘Bringing Home The Stars’ and ‘Twinkle Little Star’, plus a copy of each for Bolton Library. Zoe then took a photograph for posterity.
Speaking of books, I am signing again this weekend. On Saturday, I will be at Bolton Waterstones from 10 am to 4pm, while on Sunday I am at the Arndale Centre branch of Waterstones from 1pm to 4pm. If you are in the area, I would love to see you there.
