On Wednesday 7 November 2012, the York Literature Festival, with the York Museums Trust, will present ‘An Evening with Alexander McCall Smith’ taking place at the Tempest Anderson Hall in the Museum Gardens. The author will talk about his new book Trains and Lovers – part of a series of stories set on a train journey between London and Edinburgh.
A professor of Medical Law, who has worked in many universities in the UK and overseas, first found success when his No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, which has now sold over 20 million copies, was published. The award-winning author then went on to write The 44 Scotland Street series; The Sunday Philosophy Club series; The Corduroy Mansions series; and other individual books, making him worthy of a CBE for service to literature in 2007.
The York Literature Festival has been growing every year since it began in 2007 and has featured speakers, performances, workshops, poetry, theatre, cinema and reading groups. The festival will next take place from 21 – 24 March 2013 and more details about previous events including what’s to come can be found on the York Literature Festival website: http://www.yorkliteraturefestival.co.uk
