Blood and Gold – Launch Event with National Library of Scotland


Let performance storyteller Mara Menzies take you on a journey of tragedy, wonder and magic.

To celebrate the launch of Mara Menzie’s new novel, Blood and Gold, join us for an online event with the National Library of Scotland.

Menzies will perform stories from her book, exploring African ancestry through tales of slavery, cruelty and colonisation, unearthing pride, love and sacrifice along the way. Menzies will also be joined by author Tendai Huchu to discuss her novel.
