Alexander McCall Smith

When

Alexander McCall Smith is much-loved worldwide for his warm-hearted No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, featuring the no-nonsense Precious Ramstowe, Botswana’s leading (and only) female detective.

McCall Smith, who now lives in Edinburgh, has also won over readers with his Sunday Philosophy Club, Scotland Street and Corduroy Mansion series. His books have been translated into over 40 languages; the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series alone has sold over 20 million copies, and been made into an HBO TV show.

The Forever Girl is his latest standalone novel. Set in the Cayman Islands and UK, this globe trotting love story is sure to garner the author a million more new fans. Appearing at the Wheeler Centre shortly after the book’s release, this is a wonderful opportunity to experience the international phenomenon that is the McCall Smith imagination, by spending an evening in the company of the world’s most jovial and prolific storytellers.

For this event, Alexander McCall Smith will be joined in conversation by crime writer Angela Savage.
