AUTHOR John A White is due to be at a book fair at Gargrave Village Hall on Saturday, March 7 when he will be signing copies of his two most recent books.

Both publications relate in part to Alfred John Brown, who died in 1969, and was an author, rambler and a passionate and proud Yorkshireman.

Brown was one of the most popular and widely read authors of his day inspiring a generation of ramblers with his energetic prose, which was rich in anecdote and personal reminiscences, and with an encyclopedic knowledge of Yorkshire.

Mr White will be signing copies of The early 20th century poetry of Alfred John Brown, an anthology and Alfred John Brown, writer, walker and passionate Yorkshireman, together for a total of £10.

The book fair will run from 10am to 4pm, and will feature antiquarian, second hand and new books on all subjects, plus ephemera and postcards.

Refreshments will also be available until 3pm, an hour before closure.
