The Pearl Thief Launch, Perth, 18 May 2017

Bloomsbury, Waterstones, and the Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust are collaborating in a Scotland-based launch of The Pearl Thief with an event at the Perth Museum on Thursday 18 May 2017.

Together with Jess Smith, storyteller and outstanding advocate for the Traveller community in Scotland, I'll be discussing how landscape and community come together in creating a work of fiction. Gavin Lindsay of the Perth & Kinross Heritage Trust will moderate the event.

There's a reception at 6.30 p.m., the discussion starts at 7.00 p.m., and Jess and I will both be signing our books afterward! You can register to attend this event here.
