The past couple of weeks have seen some excellent media coverage for my new Newcastle United history book All With Smiling Faces. Following a launch event at the Toon Times exhibition at Newcastle’s Discovery Museum, I was interviewed by BBC Radio Newcastle and Premier League TV, and the book was given great spreads and featured on the front pages of both the Chronicle and Journal newspapers. Links to online versions of the articles can be found below. More coverage is lined up, and further details can be found at the website www.allwithsmilingfaces.co.uk.
