Respected rugby league author Geoff Lee will be signing copies of his latest book ‘Two Seasons’ at Waterstones in Bradford this weekend.

Lee originally hails from St Helens and went to school with BBC commentator Ray French but has lived in West Yorkshire since 1976 and is now a resident in Sandbeds, Keighley.

He has written a handful of novels about northern working-class life, often set against a rugby league background.

His books are laced with humour and many of his storylines are based on his own direct experiences plus those of relatives, friends and former workmates.

Lee is also one of a number of national speakers in the Try Reading library project, which aims to encourage more people into reading, writing and drama.

‘Two Seasons’, his new novel, is set during 2002 and 2003 and although much of the content is acted out in Lancashire, the plot stretches out to Drax Power Station in North Yorkshire, Devon, Greece, Portugal and Sweden.

Lee will be in Waterstones on Saturday from 10.30am.
