Tickets are now on sale for second author event with the exceptional writer and historian Mary W Craig. She has written a number of books, but readers of our blog will know that she wrote our April Bestseller Borders Witch Hunt, as well as the equally popular Agnes Finnie. Mary has a deep knowledge of this incredibly important part of our history and is a great storyteller. I like what she says about her approach to history:
Some historians are known as hedgehogs, happily snuffling about rooting out the minutest of historical details. Others are known as eagles, soaring on high they see the great vistas of historical events. A few are known as magpies: if something shiny and interesting catches their eye they will try to capture it where possible. I am a magpie. My main focus in writing is to explore the lives of extraordinary people who lived through extraordinary times and to bring to life the history of Europe in all its vivid colours.
The evening will feature an interview with Mary, readings, and a Q&A. We’ll have copies of her book on sale, though if you already own one, feel free to bring it along!
Tickets are £5. Doors at 19:00. Event starts at 19:30. It will take place at Heron & Willow Bookshop, 4 Canongate, Jedburgh.
We hope you can join us – tickets available now.
