Book signing - The Transformation of Freemasonry



Above is a feature from the Runcorn Weekly News regarding the book signing at the Curiosity Book shop in Runcorn, Cheshire. The shop is a popular attraction for readers and researchers in local history, and it has a variety of books which concentrate on Runcorn's bygone days as an important port on the River Mersey. The Transformation of Freemasonry looks at how the port of Runcorn played a part in Masonic history, and how another port - Liverpool, also played an important part in the history of Freemasonry, with Freemasons involved in the slave trade. I will be giving a number of talks this year about the book, especially in Liverpool, and will be concentrating on the Liverpool Masons who were involved in the slave trade and the Liverpool Masonic Rebellion - both popular topics in the city. For information on the forthcoming talks keep an eye out on the blog. Some signed copies are still available in the Curiosity Book Shop, to enquire check out the link: http://www.curiositybookshop.com/
