Scottish Travel Writers In Angus Libraries
Winter is on its way and as a fine antidote to those nights drawing in, Angus libraries are presenting a series of talks by some well-known Scottish travel writers.
Alistair Scott starts the program off in Arbroath with a talk on the subject of his latest book, George Bullough of Rum, whose itchy feet led him to travel the world between 1892 and1895. Alistair will be at Arbroath Library, Hill Terrace, on Friday 19 October between 7pm and 8pm.
Nick Thorpe is an award winning travel writer and journalist whose first book recounted his 2500 mile raft voyage to Easter Island and whose title Adrift in Caledonia was serialised on Radio 4. Catch Nick at Forfar Library, West High Street, on Thursday 25 October, between 6.45p, and 7.45pm.
Peter Kerr, whose best-selling titles include Viva Mallorca! and Snowball Oranges has recently branched out into writing mystery novels. Peter will meet with readers in Montrose Library, High Street, on Thursday 1 November, between 6.45pm and 7.45pm.
Finally, Fife author and renowned mountaineer Hamish Brown will round off the program by talking about his exploits in both Scotland and Morocco in Carnoustie Library, High Street, on Thursday 8 November, between 7pm and 8pm.
At each event, there will be the opportunity to speak with the author and books for sale and signing may be available.
Tickets are £2.50, include refreshments, and can be reserved at any Angus library. Everyone is welcome.
