On Monday I will be heading to Denby to watch the second team for a while, before the launch event at Chesterfield Library in the evening. It starts at 7.30pm and the evening comprises a short talk from me, a chance to ask questions of me and special guests who will be appearing, then a chance to buy the book and get it signed if you wish. No clues on the guests at this stage, as it is not yet finalised, but there will be some club legends involved...
Tickets are £3 and are available from Chesterfield Library by calling 01629 533400. Alternatively, you can pop in and pick one up from the library if you live locally.
Tuesday sees me back at Denby on a quieter day, then looking forward to a game of snooker against the legend (cricket and snooker) that is Edwin Smith in the evening. Perhaps I should rephrase that - looking forward to losing a game of snooker! I am also doing a radio interview in the morning, with High Peak Radio.
Wednesday might see a final mosey down to Denby, but I will be at the 3aaa County Ground later for the T20 against Lancashire. Should be a good night, a big crowd and let's pray for sunshine!
Thursday is another busy day, pretty much from morning till night, with a range of things that I look forward to and a chance to relax for a while too.
Friday? I'm down at Elvaston Cricket Club for an evening with the wonderful Edwin Smith.
I will be talking about the new book, then Edwin and I will chat about his career and answer questions from the audience. It will also be the last chance to pick up a copy of Edwin's biography, with final copies on sale on the night.
It is hoped that the evening will see the only two living men to take a thousand wickets for Derbyshire together again, which will be really special if it happens.
Elvaston Cricket Club is on Stable Drive, Elvaston, DE72 3EP and tickets for the event are £3, with proceeds going to the club's Defibrillator Appeal Fund. There will be a bar and food available, with the evening starting at 7.30pm.
Tickets are available from the club, or by calling Andy on 07722 485213.
It would be great to see you at some point during the week and if you see me down at one of the grounds, please come and say hello! It's always nice to meet folk and if you can support one of the book launches, so much the better...
