Welcome to the Back Page Book & Fanzine Club.
At the Back Page we’ve a range of over 100 books in the world of sports and games, and we’re aiming to get it to over 1000. For the remainder of 2019, if you drop in a book to us your not using anymore or have read it, we’ll swap it for a drink on the house.
How the book club works…
Anytime your in the Back Page take a book off the shelves but just let a crew member know. If you want to take one home with you, no problem but we ask you donate one to us in return, or simply – bring it back. We’re not too formal about this, we’re not library nutjobs, we just want people reading books and fanzines because we love them. Comics count too, we love them aswell.
The Back Page Book Club Presents Colin Millar author of
The Frying Pan of Spain: Sevilla v Real Betis:
Spain’s Hottest Football Rivalry
Thursday March 5th 7.30pm Upstairs at The Back Page
Seville is the capital of Spain’s Andalusian region in the endless sun of southern Spain. Home to two historic institutions of Spanish football – Real Betis and Sevilla – and when they go head-to-head to contest El Gran Derbi, the rest of Spain can only watch in awe. A pulsating and arresting experience which encapsulates the beautiful game in all its raw, spellbinding brilliance. Spanish football is more than Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Colin Millar charts the illustrious history of football in the city and explores how both clubs represent a way of life for Sevillanos. Colin Millar is a freelance football journalist and the editor of Football Espana, who has combined covering the beautiful game in his native Northern Ireland and his adopted home, Seville. Hosted by Gavin White.
