Journey to the Unknown | Geoff Banks | 12+

Geoff Banks will be talking about his book ‘Journey to the unknown’ which tells the fictitious story of a teenage brother and sister who, in 1635, journey from Cowes Isle of Wight to Maryland on the eastern American seaboard. The story follows their epic and often hostile journey of just under four months telling of likely encounters.
Geoff has always held an interest in social history and, in particular, that relating to the Isle of Wight. The story was written primarily for his two teenage granddaughters, and he hopes that readers will be enlightened by its revelations and possibly encouraged to research further the Island’s rich history.
