Diana Gabaldon (2014 event)
The Outlander books by Arizona-based author Diana Gabaldon have achieved sales figures that would make your eyes water. Little wonder that Doune Castle was recently besieged by fans keen to see the TV version being filmed. The latest instalment, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, is partly set in 1778 and features a world in flux. Gabaldon travelled to Edinburgh from Arizona to discuss her epic series in this sold-out event, filmed live at the 2014 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
