Author of The Fair Botanists: Sara Sheridan Talk and Book Signing
Join us for an afternoon talk and book signing with the author of The Fair Botanists, Sara Sheridan.
Edinburgh-based writer Sheridan has been writing both fiction and creative non-fiction for more than 20 years and has been named one of the Saltire Society’s 365 Most Influential Scottish Women past and present.
Vividly realised characters and a delightful intrigue set within the grounds of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Sara Sheridan seamlessly weaves fiction with history
Sheridan said: “Writing this book set in a key era in the history of my home town and having the opportunity to peer into the lives of some of people who lived here before me was a treat – especially the women. I wanted to create a romp that would intrigue the reader and reflect the hearty and exciting decade that drew the Enlightenment to a close with all its rambunctious pleasures and intellectual vigour.”
