Presented by Words by the Water

Alexander McCall Smith

Fri 10 May | 2pm

Words by the Water, a Festival of Words and Ideas, will be returning to Theatre by the Lake for 5 days from Wed 5 June to Sun 9 June. Five days, 50 events. Why not enjoy a tasty appetiser for the book festival when much-loved author Alexander McCall Smith takes centre stage at the theatre, a month before the main festival?

Enjoy an afternoon of sheer delight when worldwide best-selling author, Alexander McCall Smith discusses his brand new novel series, The Perfect Passion Company with BBC journalist Helen Millican. This new series has all the characteristic warmth, wit, and charm that we have come to expect from this master storyteller and follows the life of Katie as she takes on her cousin’s dating agency in Edinburgh’s New Town.

Alexander will also discuss his poetry, all the latest gossip from Mma Ramotswe and the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency in Botswana, and share his love of the characters from the 44 Scotland Scotland Street series. After their conversation, there will be plenty of time to meet Alexander and get your books signed
