A Night In With Alexander McCall Smith | Online event
6:30PM, Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Venue: Online Streamed Production
THIS IS AN ONLINE LIVE STREAMED PRODUCTION FOR YOU TO WATCH AT HOME To mark the publication of 'Your Inner Hedgehog' and 'In a Time of Distance: And Other Poems' The bestselling author of 'The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency', ALEXANDER MCCALL SMITH, has written or edited over 1000 books, with 30 million books sold in English alone worldwide. And he shows no signs of slowing down, with five new novels being published over the course of 2021. In this exclusive event, he will be celebrating his new novel 'Your Inner Hedgehog' and his poetry collection 'In a Time of Distance: And Other Poems'. 'Your Inner Hedgehog' is the latest entertaining and hilarious Professor Dr Dr Moritz-Maria Von Igelfeld novel, in which our hopelessly out-of-touch hero is forced to confront uppity librarians, the rector of the university and a possible hostile takeover, all while trying to remain studiously above it all... Comforting and evocative, 'In a Time of Distance: And Other Poems' is a beautiful collection of globe-trotting verse, combining a lyrical sense of place with heart-warming, wryly funny observations on love and friendship. From Africa to Greece, London to Mumbai, and back home to Edinburgh, this is a captivating celebration of place and people, but also of animals and books. In conversation, Alexander will explore his rich and varied career - from professor of Medical Law to New York Times bestseller and household name, what it was that inspired him to write fiction in the first place, and his writing rituals and routines. He'll touch on why friendship and love are so important to him, and why those themes that crop up time and again in his novels. With a chance to ask your own (detective) questions, this an evening with one of the world's most prolific and popular authors that you do not want to miss.
