Alexander McCall Smith


Join us for an evening of great conversation with multi-award winning author Alexander McCall Smith.

‘Sandy’ is one of the world’s most prolific and best-loved authors. Since his series following the exploits of Mma Ramotswe’s in The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, he became a household name. The series has now sold over twenty million copies in the English language alone.

His books have been translated into forty-six languages and become bestsellers throughout the world. These include the popular 44 Scotland Street novels, first published as a serial novel in the Scotsman newspaper and now the longest-running serial novel in the world; the Isabel Dalhousie novels, and the von Igelfeld series. He is also the author of numerous standalone novels, non-fiction and children’s books.

He is a witty speaker and he will be in conversation with fellow author and all-round book-expert Cathy Retzenbrink. It promises to be an entertaining and enlightening evening.

Tickets available online with and direct from the Edge of the World Bookshop.
