The Book of Seconds: The Incredible Stories of the Ones that Didn’t Quite Win

The Book of Seconds: The Incredible Stories of the Ones that Didn’t Quite Win
 
  6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Mark Mason discusses his new book The Book of Seconds: The Incredible Stories of the Ones that Didn’t Quite Win. Seconds always get lost in the shadow of famous firsts - now it’s time to bring them into the spotlight. We’ll learn how the second-tallest woman ever got married in St Martin’s in the Fields … why lots of people left the second FA Cup final early … how Savile Row helped George Lazenby get the part of 007  … and why the second woman to take her seat in the House of Commons carried a teapot in her car. As in Mason's previous books, history is brought to life by fascinating trivia and incredible facts. Did you know, for instance, that Winston Smith’s flat in 1984 is on the cover of Abbey Road by the Beatles?

Includes wine reception.
