‘Its a hill, get over it’ is launched

Prof Alan Durant introduces the book and the author

During the evening a continuous loop of slides was displayed mingling images from the book with scenes from my ‘hill’ activities over the years. See the slides here.

It was a very successful launch of the book.

Thanks to Sandstone Press and Middlesex University for their contributions to the evening. Some 50 people attended, with over 30 snapping up individually signed copies of the book. After we had cracked some wine, the proceedings continued with Prof Alan Durant laying out some of the background to the book, and to the author. Then I took the stage to tell a little more about the gestation of the book. It was also a great opportunity to thank some of those who had helped on along the way.

There was an issue with the videoing of the two speeches, and only the audio track was rescueable. That will be in next posting, along with a set of photos taken of the event. Meanwhile here is a taster [quality alert] that a friend recorded of part of my speech on their phone – which is now on YouTube.
