There are still places available to come to Working Class Museum Library annexe this Wednesday 22 September 2pm to hear Harry Taylor speak on his new book Victor Grayson: a reappraisal of the life and politics of Britain’s lost revolutionary.

Harry will talk about his decade researching the life and politics of Victor Grayson – most often remembered for winning a remarkable by-election at Colne Valley in 1907, and for his still unexplained disappearance in 1920 – and describe how much of the accepted narrative about Grayson was invented by his enemies to discredit the cause of socialism.

Harry Taylor is a former Labour councillor who now works as a political director. He is the co-author of Peter Shore: Labour’s forgotten patriot as well as Victor Grayson: in search of Britain’s lost revolutionarypublished by Pluto Press in 2021.  More at
