David France (Doctor Everton) will be discussing his book, "Everton Crazy - Sixty Seasons, Two Million Miles". Hear anecdotes from the man who has travelled the equivalent distance of to the moon and back FOUR TIMES to watch his beloved team. There will be special guests on the night including Tony Kay, Derek Mountfield, Ronnie Goodlass and Mike Hughes and David will be in conversation with Sports Editor of the Liverpool Echo, Dave Prentice.
This long-awaited and well-crafted autobiography provides a portrait of a man who has travelled the equivalent of four times the distance to the moon and back following Everton. It sparkles with the intimacy of a Blue peering through the mists of nostalgic romanticism, blind optimism and yearning for the lost Everton of his youth as well as fading hopes for winning the League Cup.
Raised as a Blue by a Blue, his sparkling memoirs chronicle the role of the club in his life and its graduation from his childhood crutch to faithful companion. His tales are fascinating. They include hitchhiking to games in the Sixties and flying Concorde to them in the Nineties. Then there are his anecdotes related to fleeting meetings with the likes of Dixie Dean and TG Jones and friendships with Dave Hickson, Brian Labone, Alex Young, Alan Ball, Howard Kendall and many more.
