Scottish crime writer Sir Ian Rankin needs no introduction! His Rebus novels have been translated into 35 languages and topped bestseller lists across the world. He has written plays, standalone novels and non-fiction, presented a TV show and even collaborated with singer Jackie Leven on a CD.
Award-winning dramatist and screenwriter, Gregory Burke’s first play Gagarin Way opened at the Traverse Fringe in 2001 before transferring to the National Theatre and the West End. He won international plaudits for Black Watch and, amongst many other projects he wrote the acclaimed screenplays ‘71 and Entebbe.
Join the fellow Fifers as Sir Ian discusses the life and times of his famed creation DI John Rebus, who Gregory Burke brought back to our TV screens after a long hiatus.
Enjoy a delicious lunch and drinks reception, as you discover the story of a Scottish fictional icon, served with a generous helping of humour and warmth.
The event will feature a raffle for some unique prizes.
There will also be a book-signing with copies of Sir Ian’s books available to purchase.
