The Story Of Chocolate: World Book Night In York
Chocolate and Easter go together like the molar and the drill. And on 23 April, Explore York Libraries and Archives are bringing World Book Night home with a special event at The Centre@Burnholme.
Hosting a talk by Penny Thorpe, who is both an author and a chocolate historian, the audience will be treated to unseen archive footage of the Quality Street factory of the 1930s, and the story of an archivist who turned her specialist subject into a novel.
Penny Thorpe was the company archivist for Nestlé for over 10 years. She has amassed a wealth of stories about the manufacture of chocolate in York and the people involved in the industry. She is writing a series of novels based on her knowledge and experience, the first of which is The Quality Street Girls.
Penny will be appearing at The Centre@Burnholme on 23 April at 6.30pm.
Bookings at a cost of £5 can be made at any library in York, or online at www.exploreyork.org.uk/events
