Following 'An Gof': Leonard Truran, Cornish Activist and Publisher

By Derek R. Williams


Len Truran was, until his death in 1997, a highly influential figure within the fields of politics and culture in Cornwall. He joined Mebyon Kernow in 1964 and, over the years, acted as both secretary and chairman of the party. His publications, under the imprint of Dyllansow Truran, are widely recognised as being seminal in the story of Cornish publishing.

In this book Derek R. Williams explores the life of Len Truran, from his childhood through to his pivotal role in Mebyon Kernow and the campaign for the creation of a Cornish Assembly and on to the remarkably prolific and influential publisher he became.

Paperback, 108 pages. ISBN 9781908878113.

The book is available to order from Amazon, Lulu.com, Waterstones, Foyles, The Book Depository and from most bookshops, worldwide.
