IWM North’s shop will be holding meet the author signings.
Author Guy Cuthbertson will be signing copies of his book at IWM North, Peace at Last: A Portrait of Armistice Day, 11 November 1918.
While the events of the war and its legacy are much discussed, this is the first book to focus solely on the day itself, examining how the people of Britain, and the wider world, reacted to the news of peace. Guy Cuthbertson brings together news reports, literature, memoirs, and letters to show how the people on the street, as well as soldiers and prominent figures like D. H. Lawrence and Lloyd George, experienced a strange, singular day of great joy, relief, and optimism.
