Alexander McCall Smith at Wigtown Book Festival (UK)

Date: 25 September 2021
Venue: Wigtown Parish Church
Time: 4.00pm

Alexander McCall Smith hit lockdown with pen in hand and has not stopped writing since – so if you are ready for an hour of good cheer, laughter and uplifting conversation join us as he talks about his latest stand-alone novel and a new volume in the No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series. The Pavilion in the Clouds is a hugely enjoyable psychological mystery set in the mist-shrouded hills high above a tea plantation in Ceylon, in the twilight days of British Empire.  Meanwhile in The Joy and Light Bus Company, Mma Ramotswe’s latest mystery is distinctly trickier than it initially appears, but she knows that most problems can be resolved with the support of loving friends and family, via tact, humour and goodwill.
