Louise Welsh burst onto the Scottish detective fiction scene in 2002 with The Cutting Room. Her enigmatic protagonist Rilke, auctioneer, cruiser, man of indeterminate morals, has retained his place in readers’ hearts for two decades, as has his creator. Now the wait is over. Join Welsh as she introduces Rilke’s return to the shadowy streets of Glasgow in The Second Cut. In this special event, she speaks with MSP for Glasgow Southside, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Stories 2022.
