Tuesday 20th November saw Stannington’s Bob Mynors introduce his Fake Histories short story collection to the audience at The Story Forge open mic night in The Fat Cat at Kelham Island. After explaining how the collection came about in the first place, he told a tale called Live from Santa’s Sleigh: the Fake History of Christmas. Bob portrayed the story’s narrator Blift, one of Santa’s Little Helpers, and the empty chair at his side was occupied by Santa Claus himself. Fake Histories is available in Stannington Library as paperback, or on amazon.co.uk either as paperback or as Kindle download. Proceeds help support the work of library volunteers.
STAND (Stannington & District Library Group) was formed in 2013 after two public meetings that explored the issues raised by Sheffield City Council’s announced withdrawal of formal support for Stannington Library. Since then, the group has been formalised, a committee was formed and teams of volunteers were recruited
