Scots Down Under: Val McDermid, CS Robertson, Liam McIlvanney* – Screening at Tolbooth
Thursday 15th September from 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm Screening at Tolbooth
In a Bloody Scotland first, we bring you a pre-recorded event from New Zealand where three leading Scottish writers will be on stage in Dunedin, in front of a live audience. Val McDermid’s 1989 is the follow-up to the exceptional 1979. Journalist Allie Burns is back, stumbling over a story about HIV/AIDS against a backdrop of kidnap and murder. CS Robertson’s The Undiscovered Deaths of Grace McGill is a spellbinding tale of loneliness and secrets, from a body in a Glasgow tenement to a missing teen on Bute. Liam McIlvanney’s long-awaited new novel The Heretic sees the return of DI Duncan McCormack to tackle brutal gang warfare in 1975 Glasgow.
