The Nostalgia Cafe
Friday 23rd saw local author Myra Duffy attend the Nostalgia Café to talk to tenants about the inspiration that the Isle of Bute gives her for her mystery novels.
Myra read extracts from some of her Alison Cameron series of novels; all set on Bute and gave some background to the characters and settings in her novels.
The presentation was very informal with Myra fielding questions during and after the presentation and also gave an insight into the daily life of an author. Myra also arranged a raffle for those that attended to take a voucher to Print Point to select one of her books.
Senior pupils from Rothesay Academy assisted in serving the teas and coffees and this joint working with the pupils is something that will be developed over the next few months.
A big thank you to Myra for coming along and giving up time from her busy schedule which at this time is taken up by writing a new children’s book, set on Inchmarnock and writing a new thriller.
