I will be speaking about my new book “Daughters of the North: Jean Gordon and Mary, Queen of Scots” in Grantown on Saturday 17th September.
“It’s Nae the Tudors!” is Grantown’s Scottish Historical Festival, organised by The Bookmark bookshop. Speakers are myself, S.G. MacLean, Fiona Watson and Clare Hunter. The morning session starts at 10.30, with my talk at 11.30. The afternoon session starts at 1.30, and will be a discussion between all the authors – which I think is going to be really interesting. The venue is The Pagoda in Grantown-on-Spey, and entry is free. For more info speak to The Bookmark on the High Street, or call them on 01479 873 433.
This talk is in addition to the others already announced for September – full details on them are in my last blog post, but here is a quick summary (with links to book tickets):
Sat 3rd Sept 4.30-5.30pm, Nairn Book Festival – ‘in conversation’ with Martin Edwards about Josephine Tey.
