What does Scotland’s past tell us about Scotland’s present? Publishing Scotland sponsors this session as part of the Year of Stories celebration with a trio of brilliant authors of historical fiction, Flora Johnston, Jean Findlay and Sue Lawrence. Each explores power, ambition, and the price of non-conformity – particularly for women – set against backdrops including the Stuart court in Scotland and London, and the covenanting movement. We’ll explore how much has changed since these times of intrigue, and how events of the past can still resonate today.
