Val McDermid & Jo Sharp: Shaping a Better Future
At last year’s Edinburgh International Book Festival, bestselling Scottish author Val McDermid and professor of geography Jo Sharp were inspired by the Festival theme, We Need New Stories. So inspired, in fact, that they decided to commission a book of dreams and ambitions for a better future, written by a lovable rogues gallery of Scottish cultural folk. Imagine A Country is the fascinating, eclectic and often inspiring result.
Edited by McDermid and Sharp, Imagine A Country is the fascinating, eclectic and often inspiring result. In this event, Val McDermid and Jo Sharp host acclaimed writers Doug Johnstone, Jo Clifford and Leila Aboulela, who read their contributions and discuss how we might create a better future for the greatest number of people.
