Award-winning author coming to Haddington to discuss a new book

0

MARY, Queen of Scots, and the clothes she wore are the focus of an evening with a best-selling author.

Clare Hunter will be at Holy Trinity Church in Haddington tomorrow to discuss her latest book, Embroidering Her Truth.

The author has been a banner maker, community textile artist and textile curator for over 20 years and started the community business NeedleWorks in Glasgow.

His first book, Threads of Life, won the Saltire First Book Award and was named Waterstones Scottish Book of the Month.

She will visit the Haddington site tomorrow to discuss how Mary used textiles to advance her political agenda, affirm her royal lineage and tell her own story.

Embroidering Her Truth seeks to blend history, politics and memoir to tell the story of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Clare will be interviewed about her new book by Kristian Kerr, Advertising Manager at Birlinn Ltd, followed by questions from the audience.

It will be possible to buy books and have them signed by the author after the end of the conference.

The event, sponsored by The Lamp of Lothian, starts at 7.30pm.
