Angus Peter Campbell at Aye Write
Thursday, 14 March, 2019 6 – 7 p.m.
The award-winning poet, novelist, journalist and broadcaster discusses his new Gaelic novel, the first event of several which explores Gaelic literature as part of Aye Write! Glasgow’s Book Festival.
‘Constabal Murdo’ is set on Barra and follows the mystery of a valuable historic brooch stolen from Kismuil Castle.
The local bobby, Murdo MacDonald from the Isle of Lewis pursues seven suspects until eventually detectives from the mainland arrive to help. The novel, a mix of detective noir with a dash of ‘Para Handy’, raises questions about the importance of community.
Tickets are just £6 (subject to transaction fees)
