BBC Scotland’s Big Scottish Book Club hosts Amanda Thomson and Graeme Macrae Burnet

Posted on November 18, 2020

We are so glad that BBC Scotland’s The Big Scottish Book Club has been able to film this year. It feels like such a treat to hear from authors without the usual Zoom background. And we are feeling extra lucky because two of our authors feature in this season: Amanda Thomson and Graeme Macrae Burnet.

On 15 November Amanda Thomson joined Kathleen Jamie, Luke Turner and Heather H Yeung as Damian Barr took us back to nature. Amanda Thomson is a visual artist and writer who teaches at the Glasgow School of Art. Her arts-based PhD, from UHI/ the University of Aberdeen, is about the forests of Abernethy and Morayshire. Her artwork is often about notions of home, movement and migration, landscapes and how places come to be made.

She is the author of A Scots Dictionary of Nature.

On 22 November Graeme Macrae Burnet will join Damian Barr as he delves into the past with Kate Mosse, Kirsty Wark and Andrés Nicolás Ordorica. Graeme Macrae Burnet is the award-winning author of The Disappearance of Adele Bedeau, His Bloody Project and The Accident on the A35. His fourth novel, Case Study, uses his playful ‘metafictional’ approach to present an enthralling, layered  novel exploring 1960s psychiatry and society. It will be published in October 2021. Subscribers to our Literary Fiction Subscription will be the very first to get their hands on a copy.
