£10–20 | Concessions available

Val McDermid is one of the UK’s most successful and respected crime writers, selling over 19 million books worldwide. She will be talking about her new novel ‘Queen Macbeth’, a fresh take on the life of that most intriguing and complex of Shakespearian characters, with former Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Set against a dramatic highland backdrop, Val McDermid invites us to encounter a new and more realised Lady Macbeth, bringing a schemer in the shadows out into the light, while exposing the patriarchal prejudices of history.
