Discovering More About Hitchin was launched on Saturday 20th October at Hitchin British Schools Museum, Queen Street, SG4 9TS, when over two hundred people celebrated the publication of our latest book with short speeches, bubbly and canapés. The editors and authors were kept busy singing books.
The new book tours the town avoiding the more documented areas, and concentrates on the origins and development of the places and themes many of us associate with “home”. Fourteen authors have explored these aspects: original landowners, new residents, replacement of some old and beautiful buildings, growth of industries, and the capturing of history with new photographic techniques.
The book is £14.95. A full report on the launch, with pictures of the event will follow soon.
