Biggar Little Festival: Ray Perman


We are delighted to welcome author and journalist Ray Perman to Biggar to talk about his latest work James Hutton: The Genius of Time.

Among the giants of the Scottish Enlightenment, the name of James Hutton is overlooked. Yet his Theory of the Earth revolutionised the way we think about how our planet was formed and laid the foundation for the science of geology. He was in his time a doctor, a farmer, a businessman, a chemist yet he described himself as a philosopher – a seeker after truth.

Tickets £7 – to book a place please ring Atkinson-Pryce Books on 01899 221225 or email
