Join Olga Wojtas as she launches her new novel – an homage to Muriel Spark

January 4, 2018

Author Olga Wojtas will be launching her idiosyncratic and “cosy crime” novel, Miss Blaine’s Prefect and the Golden Samovar, at two events in Edinburgh and Glasgow in January.

Olga will be discussing how Miss Blaine’s Prefect and the Golden Samovar was inspired by The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie – and by her own experiences at James Gillespie’s High School, the “real life” Marcia Blaine School for Girls.
