A Secret Diary of the First World War: Book Launch on Thursday 8th November 2018

Join author Gill Arbuthnott and illustrator Darren Gate to find out what it was really like to be soldier in the First World War.

Inspired by the real-life diary of Scottish boy soldier James Marchbank, A Secret Diary of the First World War mixes James's story with timelines, letters, diagrams and illustrations to create a fact-tastic account of the First World War, which is both fun and emotionally engaging for younger readers.

Join us to find out:

Why was rat hunting a popular hobby in the trenches?
How did parachuting pigeons help win the war?
Why would a really good friend would rub whale oil on your feet?
And much more!

Books will be available for sale and signing.

Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
