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 either as paperback or as Kindle download. Proceeds help support the work of library volunteers.

STAND was formed in 2013 after Sheffield City Council announced its decision to close sixteen libraries (including Stannington) unless volunteers took them on. STAND was registered as a charity in 2014 and is funded by grants, donations and fund-raising activities. The library is run by a team of dedicated volunteers.
