5×15 Stories Presents Alexander McCall Smith and James Naughtie
(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)
This will be a very special ‘at home’ event, with Alexander McCall Smith drawing on treasured personal objects from around his house to tell his story and chart his journey from professor of medical law to global publishing sensation.
Alexander is one of the world’s best-loved, and best-selling, authors: his No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series alone has sold over 20 million copies worldwide and been translated into 46 languages. In total, he has written or edited over 100 books, including volumes of poetry, short stories and books for children.
2021 sees Alexander launch five new novels – including new instalments of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, 44 Scotland Street and Detective Varg series – and to celebrate publication he will be looking back over his career with his friend, the broadcaster and journalist James Naughtie.
