Meet the author of ‘Fracking the UK’ at Silverdell bookshop, Kirkham on 18 December

Well known anti-fracking campaigner Alan Tootill will be the guest at a Meet the Author and Book Signing event at the Silverdell bookshop Kirkham on Thursday 18th December. First published in 2013, his book ‘Fracking the UK‘ takes a look at the history of shale gas development in the US, the damage it is causing, and how a powerful industry wants not only to industrialise Britain’s landscape but throw concerns about climate change to the wind. His conclusion is simple. We should not allow this to happen here.

The book will be on sale for £5.99, with proceeds going to the anti-fracking campaign. Book shop owner Councillor Elaine Silverwood has also done much to raise awareness about fracking and is waiving her fee, ensuring that all proceeds go to the campaign.

Silverdell has a café, so come along and have a coffee, purchase the book, have a chat and know that you are contributing to the campaign!

If you can’t make the event, you can order the book off the Silverdell website. You can also download an  eBook version from Amazon

Thursday 18 December at 10.30 am at the Silverdell Bookshop, 61 Poulton Street, Kirkham, Preston PR4 2AJ.
