Alexander McCall Smith will be speaking at Daunt Books, Marylebone

An evening in the company of the wry, funny and charming Alexander McCall Smith is always a pleasure. He joins us ostensibly to tell us all about the new No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency novel, The Woman Who Walked in Sunshine, and the latest 44 Scotland Street instalment, The Revolving Door of Life, but his literary world is now a huge and hugely entertaining one and no doubt Isabel Dalhousie, Dr Von Igelfeld, and his lovely children’s novels will all get a mention… as of course will Bertie!

Tickets are £8 and include a glass of wine, 20% off the speaker’s books and 20% off supper on the night at Hardy’s Brasserie and Wine Bar.

Tickets may be purchased from our Marylebone shop in person, with credit/debit card by telephone 0207 224 2295 or from the Daunts Books website.
