Peace in Sheffield and No Redemption in Durham

As part of the Off the Shelf Festival the Shepley Book Club boys went to hear David Peace speak. Here's a photo of David with the group. David read from Damned United and talked about his Yorkshire based books. There was also an opportunity to hear from Keith Pattison who has produced 'No Redemption' a challenging book of black and white photographs of the Miners' strike in the Durham coalfield. As we enter a new age of austerity the images offer a stark reminder of the deep divisions that still exist in our society. You can view a slideshow of Keith's photographs here.
