Gabriel Gbadamosi, Vauxhall-born novelist, poet and playwright (and Vauxhall Society committee member), has just won the ‘Best International Novel’ award at this year’s Sharjah International Book Fair for his autobiographically-tinged novel Vauxhall. Even before it was published Vauxhall was a winner, for in 2011 it collected the Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize.
Gabriel leads ‘My Vauxhall’, November’s free guided local history walk (Thursday 19 December, 1230-130pm) which is funded by Vauxhall One and organised by The Vauxhall Society. These monthly lunchtime walks are primarily for employees of Vauxhall firms, but if you like the sound of one, contact Vauxhall One and you may well be able to book a place, again free of charge, courtesy of Vauyxhall One. We’ll publish full details of the December walk in a day or two.
