Jim Hunter will be talking about his new book, Insurrection: Scotland's Famine Winter. When the 1846 potato crop was wiped out by blight, there was starvation and death in the west, and the people of the east rising up in protest at the cost of oatmeal. Those dramatic events have long been forgotten or ignored. Now, in James Hunter, they have their historian. The story he tells is by turns moving, anger-making and inspiring.
