Fast Forward Launch Event featuring Alexander McCall Smith

As part of Shoreham Wordfest join master storyteller Alexander McCall Smith, live from his home in Edinburgh, as he virtually welcomes you to Shoreham Wordfest. The delightful raconteur will bring you up to date on the latest news from Mma Ramotswe and her No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency in Botswana, the new goings on at 44 Scotland Street, and he will be discussing his new stand-alone novel, The Pavilion in the Clouds, a beautiful story set on a tea plantation in 1930s Ceylon during the final days of the British Empire. There will be a welcome drink beforehand in the glorious new Sussex Yacht Club. An evening not to be missed!
