Author to give book signing at Cromford

Acclaimed author Roger Osborne will be taking part in a book signing for his latest work Iron, Steam & Money at Cromford Mills on Thursday, June 6.

Roger Osborne is the author of a dozen books that provide new insights into major episodes, events and movements in world history.

Iron, Steam & Money, just published by Bodley Head, takes a fresh look at the decades when British ingenuity and technological innovation changed the course of human history and ushered in the modern world. Cromford Mills was in the vanguard of this innovative period.

It is a thrilling story of rivalries, skulduggery, death threats, moments of inspiration and the tireless perseverance of the visionaries who made it all happen including Richard Arkwright and his Cromford Mills.

Roger will be talking about his book and signing copies at Cromford Mills at 7:30pm in the Gothic Warehouse. The event is free but donations will be gratefully received to help continue the work of the Arkwright Society in preserving Cromford Mills for future generations.

Places are limited so advance booking is recommended.
