Chesterfield Public Library is hosting the launch, which will take place on the evening of Tuesday, August 25 at 7.30pm.
I will be interviewing Edwin on the stage of the library lecture theatre and we will then take questions from the audience before signing copies of the book, which will be available on the night.
Priced £14, Edwin Smith: a Life in Derbyshire Cricket is published by the Association of Cricket Historians and Statisticians and features Edwin's recollections of a career where he was the lead spin bowler in the Derbyshire side at the age of 18 and remained so for twenty summers.
It would be great to see as many people there as possible, to acknowledge Edwin as the living Derbyshire legend that he is. 1217 first-class wickets in the county colours confirms that.
Please call the library on 01629 533400 for tickets, priced £3 and £2 (concession).
