Plume Lecture 2019

The Plume lecture took place on Saturday 16th November in the United reformed Church Maldon. The guest speaker was actor and President of the Independent Libraries Association, Neil Pearson.

Plume Library Trustee and High Sheriff of Essex, Dr James Bettley’s conversation with Neil ranged over a number of topics: his acting career, his collection of rare books, his authorship of Obelisk: A History of Jack Kahane and the Obelisk Press, and his business as a rare books dealer.

Neil was eloquent in his enthusiasm and knowledge and the audience, of over one hundred people, responded with laughter, rapt attention and thoughtful questions.
