Six successful crime novels – the seventh, Death is a Welcome Guest just launched, musical collaborations, plays and non-fiction radio features, recipient of numerous awards and fellowships…the Reading Room is excited to present author Louise Welsh for afternoon and evening events, on Tuesday, July 28, at Skeabost Hotel.
Welsh will hold a Crime Writing Workshop from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., where she will impart ‘all I know about crime writing in two hours’. The author has an impish sense of humor and admits to enjoying messing with people’s heads in her fiction, tweaking the reader’s trust in a character. With what appears to be a ceaseless and almost impossible schedule of writing and projects, she may really be capable of zapping our brains in those two hours.
There is a £5 per head fee for the two-hour workshop. Please book online at – firstname.lastname@example.org or via Reading Room Facebook page.
An Evening with Louise Welsh begins at 7.30 p.m. There is no entry fee and all are welcome.
The Skeabost Hotel offers fine dining and a casual menu is also available, serving afternoon teas and light bites throughout the day, plus an interesting and varied wine list, and large range of Malt whiskies and vast selection of Scottish Gins; there is something to suit all tastes. Be sure to visit the cozy pub while enjoying the ambiance of this historic hotel.
Directions: Once on the outskirts of the village of Portree, take the Dunvegan Road A 850 and travel about seven miles to Skeabost, remembering to fork left at the junction for Dunvegan/Uig.
