Graeme Macrae Burnet Book Groups Event
Monday 14 November | 16:30-18:00
Award winning Scottish Author Graeme Macrae Burnet returns to the Mitchell Library during Book Week Scotland to delight and inspire current and potential book group members.
Graeme will be discussing his Booker Longlisted new novel, Case Study – a dazzling and often wickedly humorous – meditation on the nature of sanity, identity, and truth itself. Set in London 1965, an unworldly young woman believes that a charismatic psychotherapist, Collins Braithwaite, has driven her sister to suicide. Intent on confirming her suspicions, she assumes a false identity and presents herself to him as a client, recording her experiences in a series of notebooks. But she soon finds herself drawn into a world in which she can no longer be certain of anything. Even her own character.
Following Graeme's session, participants will have the opportunity to view new book group collections, find out more information about book groups and ask library staff questions.
The event will be held on the ground floor, please access the building via the Granville Street entrance
