• RD Blackmore and the writing of 'Lorna Doone'

Thursday 10th October 7pm-8pm

RD Blackmore - Teddington author and market gardener

Teddington Library is the appropriate venue for a talk by local historian Ken Howe about the way RD Blackmore (pictured) began writing his best selling novel Lorna Doone, published in 1869. Ken will also look at some of the real-life characters and events that provided inspiration for the book.
