FANS of rock group Queen are expected to flock to a local book shop when their lead guitarist Brian May makes a guest appearance there.

Mr May will be making an appearance at David's Booksop in Letchworth GC to sign his book A Village Lost & Found that he co-wrote with Elena Vidal.

Queen fans have been calling from around the world in an attempt to be at the signing on Friday, May 21, at 7.30pm. One fan will fly in from Japan and another from Italy.

The guitarist's quest to identify the village began 30 years as he investigated and researched 59 stereoscopic cards compiled in the 1850s by Thomas Richard Williams in his book Scenes in Our Village.

The end product is a book that contains a powerfully atmospheric and touching set of photographs.
