Peter Read – Hollywood to Wrexham

Monday, 24 April, 7.00pm 
Wrexham Library 
£6 

From Hollywood to Wrexham is the title of local writer Peter Read’s forthcoming book about Wrexham AFC’s first seasons under the control of new owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenny. So, here’s an opportunity for a sneak preview when Peter shares some of the extraordinary stories that have inspired this latest piece of his prolific writing. If you’ve seen his one-man shows and his many plays – staged in over 40 theatres – you’ll know that Peter Read is a fabulous raconteur and here will weave the story of the Hollywood takeover with his own experiences, and the experiences of other fans, while following the Robins and Dragons. And maybe Peter can be persuaded to perform some excerpts from his recent play Dixie or Me! about the club’s previous glory years.
