Join us for the book launch of Shane Strachan’s short story collection, “Nevertheless: Sparkian Tales in Bulawayo”.
From 6.30pm there will be time to explore the Buladeen exhibition and mingle. At 6.45pm, Shane will give a small talk about how he came to write the collection after working with Grampian Hospitals Art Trust on an arts-in-health project in Lady Rodwell Maternity Hospital in Bulawayo, where Muriel Spark gave birth to her son in 1938.
This will be followed by readings from the stories which have been funded as part of the Muriel Spark 100 programme in celebration of Spark’s centenary in 2018, led by Creative Scotland and the National Library of Scotland.
From October, you can purchase a copy of “Nevertheless”, published by Bulawayo-based ‘amaBooks, in all e-book formats or order a print copy from www.africanbookscollective.com
All profit will go to Lady Rodwell Maternity Hospital (UBH), Bulawayo.
