Event details

Join us in the York Waterstones store with Isobel Akerman as we celebrate the release of her new guidebook, Secret York: An Unusual Guide

Isobel will be talking with Andrew Morrison, Chief Executive of the York Civic Trust, about the hidden sites around the city and how we can conserve them for the future. 

This is an event for those who really want to get to know York, and especially for those who think they know it already…
