‘Petersfield Library’ will be reading John Bell’s ‘Epitaph on a Beech Tree - A Tale of the Great War’
The ‘Petersfield Library’ in Hampshire will be hosting the book reading ceremony for John Bell’s ‘Epitaph on a Beech Tree- A Tale of the Great War’. The libraries in Hampshire are doing WW1 commemoration events throughout October and November. It is a story about an individual named ‘Ben Robinson’ who was a miner before the start of WW1. He, later on, became a dispatch rider for the war but always opposed the idea of ‘King, Country, and religion’. He was awarded a Military Medal for his service in the Military. His struggle was to find his gone spirituality and unfulfilling relationships. The story relies on the perception of social and emotional characteristics which continues to inspire its readers. The author, John Bell was born into a middle-class family in the city of Nottingham. He was a popular dilettante who left school with not much to gain. He started and built his career in music education and became an accomplished drummer later on.
