Local author Desmond Clarke was there with his book ‘Stolen Inheritance’, a work which developed from his studies in to African history.

Desmond is a former “Mander College” (as Bedford College was called in the 20th Century) student. He praised the encouragement he received as a mature student signing up to take a GCSE in English in 1991. Going from strength to strength he progressed to A Levels, then a degree at university and finally a Masters.

Now he is a published author on a subject of global significance.
