Appledore Book Festival: Alexander McCall Smith


International bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith is one of our most prolific and best-loved authors. His most famous creation, Mma Precious Ramotswe, the only female private detective in Botswana, has been delighting readers for more than a quarter of a century with her gentle wit and wisdom.

The No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, and the series of 22 books that followed, have sold over 25 million copies, been translated into 46 languages and made McCall Smith a household name.

Today he will be speaking about the enduring appeal of Mma Ramotswe, including the latest novel in the series, From a Far and Lovely Country, his life as a writer, and his latest collection of poetry, dedicated to love and kindness, I Think of You.
