Author and journalist Jane Graham has just published Letters to My Younger Self: 100 Inspiring People on the Moments That Shaped Their Lives. This collection originates from a series started in The Big Issue more than ten years ago, when they asked people to write a letter to their younger self; since then, some of the most brilliant and successful people from the worlds of entertainment, politics, food, sport and business have had their letters published in the magazine.
Sir Paul McCartney writes on how he found inspiration; Mo Farah on the importance of losing; and many, many more great names such as Margaret Atwood, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Palin reflect on their past.
The theme of Book Week Scotland 2019 is Conversation. What better way to celebrate than to chat with Jane about the universal experience of thinking about what would we say to our younger self?
The event will take place on the ground floor of Airdrie Library. There is an accessible entrance, automated doors and an accessible toilet.
