FRIDAY JUNE 2ND: ULLAPOOL BOOKSHOP, QUAY STREET, ULLAPOOL ‘A SENSE OF PLACE; A MOMENT IN TIME’ 3 AUTHORS COME TOGETHER AT ULLAPOOL BOOKSHOP FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY.
On Friday 2nd June from 5.30pm, 3 bestselling authors, will come together at Ullapool Bookshop for one night only. Entitled ‘A Sense of Place; a moment in time,’ historical fiction writer S.G.

Halliday (Under the Marsh) (Gareth), and novelist John McLellan (The Faultline) will present an evening chaired by Bookshop Manager Katharine Douglas, discussing the sense of place in each of their very different novels. Each author undertakes very different research methods, from visiting the original Scottish archives to verify historical accuracies, inc Ordnance Survey maps of the 18th Century and historical buildings of significance, to climbing and exploring the NW and investigating Scottish crimes and to verifying the region of Kinlochewe, including setting the scene in the late 1970’s, for a group of young people who spent the summer there, exploring life, geology, history and ultimately making life-long friendships in the novel The Faultline.
