We are extremely honoured to announce that celebrated and prolific Author Alexander McCall Smith has kindly taken time out his busy writing schedule to talk about his life, inspiration, characters and anything else that might come up in conversation at an exclusive event to support the Pelican Post in London on 03 March 2011 (World Book Day).

 We are no less thrilled to also announce that Alexander will be joined by TV Proms Presenter Clemency Burton-Hill as she delves into the imaginative mind of this best selling author.

Alexander, is always a fascinating and engaging author to hear in conversation, not only for the colourful and varied characters he brings to life in his books but for his other activities and interests that he supports outside of his writing.  (Alexander’s operatic work and involvement with The Really Terrible Orchestra may get a mention given Clemency’s shared passion for music!)  Whatever the topic of conversation, Alexander’s  witty anecdotes, his characteristic cheerfulness in person, and general postive demeanour and approach to both his characters and life in general always make for a popular event with audiences up and down the land.

Alexander will also be answering questions from the audience, as well as talking exclusively with Clemency about the inspiration behind his latest book – the twelfth no less in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series – ” The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party” and his other most recent publication – “The Importance Of Being Seven” both of which will be available for sale and for book signing along with other titles written by Alexander after the event.  Supporters can pre-order a copy of his latest book by emailing with proceeds from the sale going towards The Pelican Post.




To be sure to have reserved a place for this event or to contact the organisers for further information, email
