An Evening with Alexander McCall Smith

Friday 4 October 2024 at 7:30pm

Spend a delightful evening with worldwide best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith as he discusses his latest works in conversation with The Very Rev’d Jonathan Greener, Dean of Exeter.

Travel with the master storyteller to catch up with Mma Ramotswe in Botswana as he discusses his latest No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency novel, The Great Hippopotamus Hotel. Then allow Alexander to transport you to the west coast of Scotland, the setting for his new stand alone novel, The Winds from Further West, which tells a tale of love, Scottish islands, and wolf cubs.

Finally, Alexander will whisk you to Edinburgh to learn about his brand new series, The Perfect Passion Company, which features a dating agency in the city’s Old Town. While there, he might also introduce you to Isabel Dalhousie, Edinburgh resident and moral philosopher. You can read about her latest exploits in The Conditions of Unconditional Love.

This event will also include a Q&A session.
