We are very proud to announce that our next author event celebrates a landmark publication – Scotland: Her Story by Rosemary Goring.
Scotland’s history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women. This book takes a unique perspective on dramatic national events as well as ordinary life, as experienced by women down the centuries.
It encompasses women from all stations of class, fame and notoriety, from Mary Queen of Scots and Margaret Tudor to Muriel Spark and Nicola Sturgeon. Drawing on court and Kirk records, exchequer rolls and treasurer’s accounts, diaries and memoirs, government reports and eye-witness statements, Scotland: Her Story brings to life the half of history that has for too long been hidden or ignored.
Rosemary Goring is literary editor and columnist for The Herald and Sunday Herald, and now lives in Bowden so we can claim her as a local author.
