McMillan YorkshireFive Leaves Bookshop is delighted to host  the poet, journalist and broadcaster Ian McMillan, who will be talking about his latest book Neither Nowt Nor Summat: In Search of the Meaning of Yorkshire (Ebury press). 

To try to understand Yorkshire, Ian embarks on a journey of discovery around the county, starting in the village he’s lived in his entire life. With contributions from the Cudworth Probus Club, a kazoo playing train guard, Mad Geoff the barber and four Saddleworth council workers looking for a mattress, Ian tries to discover what lies at the heart of Britain’s most distinct county and its people. Is the Yorkshire Pudding worthy of becoming a UNESCO Intangible Heritage Site? Is Harrogate really, really, in Yorkshire? And, of course, who knocks up the knocker up?

Tickets cost £15 in advance, which includes a copy of Neither Nowt Nor Summat: In Search of the Meaning of Yorkshire (normal price £16.99) and a glass of wine; or £18 for two, which includes one copy of the book and two glasses of wine.
Note – this event must be booked in advance. Tickets limited to forty people.
