Three final author events for 2022!
We're counting down to the end of the year with three fantastic events - our new season will begin in early 2022, watch this space for a big announcement!
An Evening with Andrew Greig and Rachel Newton, Saturday 22nd October, 7.30pm Linlithgow Primary School
We've teamed up with the Linlithgow Arts Guild to bring you a special evening of spoken word and the beautiful sound of the clarsach in this one off event with award-winning author Andrew Greig and award-winning musician Rachel Newton. As the author of books such as Preferred Lies, Fair Helen, Rose Nicholson and At the Loch of the Green Corrie, Andrew Greig will be blending his words with the music of BBC Young Musician of the Year winner, Rachel Newton in what will be a very special evening.
Tickets are £7.50 and available on our website here, or in the shop.
Refreshments included and book and CD sales will be happening after the event.
The Birth of Britpop with Paul Laird, Friday 4th November, 7.30pm, Queen Margaret Hall
Come and relive the Birth of Britpop with someone who was *really* there... This is another collaborative event: Far From The Madding Crowd Bookshop and Low Port Music have teamed up to bring you an evening of stories, plus a live DJ playing loads of tunes we haven't heard for a very long time (why did we ever let them slip off our playlists!)
Tickets £8 and available from our website here, or in the shop
Includes refreshments, books and records will be on sale at the event.
The Call of the Cormorant with Donald S Murray, Wednesday 9th November, 7.00pm, St Peter's Church
Our final ticketed event of the year is with one of our favourite authors. We've been long-term readers and fans of Donald S Murray's work, but this will be his first visit to Linlithgow, so don't miss out! Donald is celebrating the launch of his latest novel, The Call of the Cormorant, based on a true story and charting the fantastical life of the self-styled Count of St Kilda, who ended up in the middle of the febrile atmosphere of 1930s Berlin. Les Wilson, long-time friend and collaborator of Donald, will be interviewing him about this fascinating book, plus his other work.
Tickets £5 and available from our website here, or in the shop
Refreshments included and book sales available at the event.
