I bumped into the Bloke from Hull in Castleford today and he reminded me about his forthcoming shindig at The Junction pub on Carlton Street.
He said: "My book, 'From Junk to Junction: The Renaissance of The Junction, Castleford' is set to be launched at the pub on Thursday, November 26, at 8pm.
"Aditionally, there will be Cas Caviar, a special one-off beer from Elland Brewery called Codex and renditions of the pub anthems led by Rich Jones accompanied on the piano by Colin Williams.
"If anyone is stuck for Christmas gifts we should also have Elland brewery clocks, clothing and charity Junction badges (for those who missed out on them earlier in the year).
"I hope you can come along."
Profits from the sale of the book will go to Alzheimer's Society. It costs £7.50 at the pub or £10 mail order.
