Alexander McCall Smith at Manchester Literature Festival (UK)

Date: 6 October 2018
Venue: Central Library, St Peter's Square, Manchester City Centre, M2 5PD
Time: 7.00pm

20 years ago, Precious Ramotswe established The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency in Gabarone, Botswana. The subsequent novels in Alexander McCall Smith’s series became a literary phenomenon, and have since been translated into 46 different languages. A prolific and much-loved writer, Alexander has written and contributed to over 100 books, and his series, 44 Scotland Street, is the longest running serial novel in the world.

Alexander is also a lover of tea, travel and fried Marmite sandwiches. We’re delighted that he’s able to fit in a special visit to MLF to discuss his extraordinary career, his unique characters, and his latest Mma Ramotswe adventure, The Colours of All the Cattle. Hosted by critic Alex Clark.
