Update on Robert Harris, plus a reminder of our autumn events

Robert Harris event: postponed

We're very sorry to announce that Robert Harris has been forced to cancel this leg of his national tour as he's contracted covid.
This means his scheduled event in Linlithgow on Wednesday 28th September cannot go ahead as planned.
We are doing our best to reschedule the event, but if you have bought a ticket and you would like a full refund, then please contact us (details below) and we will refund you.
As soon as we know if we are able to reschedule this event, we will make an announcement, but apologies again: we're gutted!
Many thanks,
Sally and the team.

We do still have a great autumn line-up of events!

Including Kate Mosse, and events with two authors named Andrew Greig, both of whom will have clarscah accompaniments, in what is surely a bookshop first!

 Andrew James Greig, A Song of Winter, Thursday 6th October at 7.00pm in St Peter's Church
Book Launch! We are thrilled to announce that Andrew James Greig is launching his latest novel, A Song of Winter, right here in Linlithgow. Described as a cli-fi novel, set entirely in Scotland, it follows the struggle of a family trying to survive as the climate tips into instability and another ice-age.
Tickets £3* and available in the shop or online here: www.maddingcrowdlinlithgow.com
*Ticket includes discount on book at the event

As this is a book launch, expect cake and a clarsach!


 An evening with Kate Mosse, Tuesday 11th October, 7.00pm, St Peter's Church, Linlithgow
Another of our favourite authors is heading to Linlithgow! Kate Mosse OBE is the author of the fabulous Languedoc trilogy, and we are currently enjoying her latest series, The Burning Chambers and City of Tears. She is coming to Linlithgow to discuss a new non-fiction work, Warrior Queens and Quiet Revolutionaries - real life stories of the women who also helped to shape our world. Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries brings together Kate’s rich and detailed knowledge of unheard and under-heard women’s history, and of how and why women’s achievements have routinely been omitted from the history books. This beautifully illustrated book is both an alternative feminist history of the world and a personal memoir about the nature of women’s struggles to be heard, about how history is made and by whom.
This is a hybrid event, so please email sally@maddingcrowdlinlithgow.com if you would like to access it via zoom.
Tickets £5* and available in the shop or online here: www.maddingcrowdlinlithgow.com
*Ticket includes discount on book and refreshments at the event


 An Evening With Andrew Greig and Rachel Newton, Saturday 22nd October, 7.30pm, Linlithgow Primary School

Far From the Madding Crowd have teamed up with the Linlithgow Arts Guild for this very special event and we are delighted to announce the return of Andrew Greig and Rachel Newton to Linlithgow! Join us for a very special evening combining poetry and music, with two talents at the top of their game: separately and jointly they bring delight, wit and solace to our challenging times.
Our second event in October with a clarsach (and an author named Andrew Greig!)
Tickets £7.50 and available in the shop or online here: www.maddingcrowdlinlithgow.com
