The Arlington Baths are delighted to invite you to the Glasgow launch of Fiona Gillan Kerr's new novel, the Bone on the Beach, at our beautiful community-run baths club.
This event is run in collaboration with Ringwood Publishing, an independent publishing house based in Glasgow. The Bone on the Beach is an enthralling contemporary mystery and ghost story – the Celtic legend of Deirdre of the Sorrows reimagined for the modern day. The most tragic of all Celtic legends, it is the tale of a young girl, trapped by men’s perceptions and community expectations. Her only means of escape endangers her life and the lives of those she loves.
In this contemporary retelling, two stories and lives are interwoven – that of Deirdre and of Meghan Bell - who, fifteen years later, revisits the mystery of Deirdre, seeking the truth behind the legend. If she can lay Deirdre’s spirit to rest, will they both find a way to move on, in this world and the next?
Fiona Gillan Kerr will give readings of her novel, take part in a discussion about the book and its depiction and celebration of Highland culture, answer questions from the audience, and sign copies of her book.
