Congratulations to Mark Jones (OB 72-79) on the launch of his new children’s book “Jason’s Magic Railway”.

It was a pleasure to have Mark join us and Year 7 recently, to discuss and read extracts from his first book, Jason’s Magic Railway. “10-year-old Jason somehow finds himself transported to back to Blackburn in 1862.  He has no money, few clothes and doesn’t know anyone, but, he discovers the generosity of a struggling Irish family and is befriended by the local clergyman”.  As real historical events happen around him, Jason has amazing adventures amid poverty, crime, a train crash and a riot.

Mark was kind enough to leave the library with a signed copy of his book.  Look out for book number two, soon to be published.
