New book from Janet Paisley

19th July 2007

Writer Janet Paisley will be giving a series of talks and readings from her new historical novel 'White Rose Rebel' which is Waterstone's Scottish Book of the Month and number 6 in their Scottish best-seller and hardback best-seller lists. For the reader with an interest in all of Scotland's languages, English, Gaelic and Scots, this is sure to be a treat. Though largely written in English, characters also use some Scots dialogue throughout. Janet will be giving readings at the following places: AK Bell Library, Perth (2 August: 7.30pm); Edinburgh Book Festival (25 August: 7pm); Wigtown Book Festival (5 & 6 October); National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh (25 October: 7pm); Dalmellington Library, South Ayrshire (8 November: 8pm).
