Olga Wojtas launches Miss Blaine’s Prefect and the Golden Samovar

February 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Olga Wotjas’ debut novel is a cosy crime homage to Muriel Spark’s The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, timed to celebrate the cetenary of Muriel Spark’s birth! Olga was educated at James Gillespie’s High School, the model for the famous Marcia Blaine School for Girls, and she drew on that experience for this fantastic and funny book!

Fifty-something Shona is a proud former pupil of the Marcia Blaine School for Girls, but has a deep loathing for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, which she thinks gives her alma mater a bad name.
Impeccably educated and an accomplished martial artist, linguist and musician, Shona is thrilled when selected by Marcia Blaine herself to travel back in time for a one-week mission in 19th-century Moscow: to pair up the beautiful, shy, orphaned heiress Lidia Ivanovna with Sasha, a gorgeous young man of unexplained origins.

Miss Blaine’s Prefect and the Golden Samovar is published by Saraband.
