Donald Jack Display


Following on from our post about Radcliffe-born author, Donald Jack, we are very pleased to tell you that our display is up and running!

It was a pleasure to welcome Gordon Hale as one of the first visitors to view it – he was really thrilled to see the photos, particularly as they were taken way back in 1962 when Mr Jack had his first novel published. In addition to the display, we have copies of Donald Jack’s novels for you to browse.

Please note, if you are a library member you can borrow the first volume of The Bandy Papers and discover for yourself the comic genius of its author!

And here are a few images from Gordon’s visit last Friday:
