Alexander McCall Smith in ‘Write On’ at Borders Book Festival, Melrose, UK

Date: 16 June 2024
Venue: BSW Group Marquee, Borders Book Festival
Time: 5.15pm

Alexander McCall Smith is the most prolific writer of fiction in Scotland, and he is joined by Alistair Moffat, the most prolific writer of non-fiction in Scotland. They discuss the business of getting it all down on paper, how they work, what the differences between the genres are, where ideas come from – and where they go. Sandy and Alistair’s output may be prodigious, but both understand that the last page is also a beginning. Books need to be promoted and audiences engaged. And both will be happy to do the latter and will welcome questions.
