GOSPORT author John Bull will be launching his new book, The Smile on the Face of the Pig, at Gosport Discovery Centre on Saturday.

The memoir, subtitled Confessions of the Last Cub Reporter, is the follow-up to The Night They Blitzed The Ritz. It takes a look at Hampshire in the 1950s through the eyes of a 17-year-old reporter, newly recruited to the Portsmouth Evening News. Mr Bull will be signing books from 10am to 1pm.
