Calling all South Londoners…

Emma Craigie, author of the much-adored Chocolate Cake with Hitler is talking at the Clapham Waterstones tomorrow (20th Sept) at 7pm. Emma has talked at schools across the country and is fascinating to listen to and much in demand. If you have children studying WWII then do not miss this opportunity – she will dig out the deeply buried historian in your child and have them sitting on the edge of their seats.
