Rediscover the joy of being read to as we explore tales of love, longing and what it is to be human, by the best women writers world-wide. So far this year we’ve been intrigued by strangers on trains, bewitched by selkies and fallen in love with kind-hearted crooks.

Could a campervan save your life? Sue Reid Sexton has travelled all over Scotland in her tiny, beloved campervan, using it as a creative space as well as an escape hatch from hectic family life.  Her book, Writing on the Road, celebrates the joys and challenges of being a woman travelling alone in Scotland’s wild places. Unleash your own wanderlust at this Story Café Special.

Our Story Café Specials are an intimate way of hearing some of the freshest voices from Scottish writing. Specials this Autumn are: Sue Reid Sexton on Thursday 22nd September, Banned Books Week on Thursday 29th September, Grey Hen Press on Thursday 6th October, Chitra Ramaswamy on Thursday 27th October, and Ethyl Smith on Thursday 24th November. Find out all about Story Cafés this Autumn here.

There’s always room around our Story Café table and more tea in the pot, so sit back, relax and become part of it.
