Rosemary Goring, author of Scotland: Her Story, will be at Edinburgh International Book Festival on 14.08.19
14 August 2019

Scotland’s history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women. Rosemary Goring’s powerful anthology Scotland: Her Story, draws on court records, treasurer’s accounts, diaries, chapbooks, newspapers and eye-witness statements, offering a unique perspective on dramatic national events as well as ordinary life through the centuries. Goring joins us to discuss the women, from the severe Queen Margaret to today’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, giving a tantalising glimpse of how they felt, and bringing to life the half of history that has for too long been hidden or ignored. Chaired by Jane Fowler.

Date: Wednesday 14th August

Time: 3.45pm

Venue: Spark Theatre on George Street

Tickets: £12, £10
