It’s been a quiet few months for the book after the hectic round of talks and other events last year – a time to pause and take stock. The paperback edition is still flying on Amazon and has had 45 five-star reviews so far. I’ve been amazed at how well received it has been and can’t thank enough all the people who have bought the book and turned up to hear me talk about Angel Meadow. Until last year, I’d never done a talk on any subject before. It’s been a rollercoaster ride, but a great experience and I’ve met some fantastic people along the way.
I can’t say too much now, but I’m hoping to have some exciting news to share soon about a book-related project I could be working on later this year.
In the meantime, I’m looking forward to giving a talk about Angel Meadow at the Working Class Movement Library in Salford on June 21. I spent some time at the WCML while doing some research on Friedrich Engels for the book and it is easily one of my favourite libraries. The talk will be part of the library’s Invisible Histories series. It will start at 2pm and is free. Click here for more details.
