LJOSLAND "CHRISSIE'S BODLE" - BOOK PRESENTATION IN PAPAY
Sunday 26 JUNE. 7pm @ PAPEY LISTSKJUL
new book presentation and signing:
Costie is a forgotten Orkney writer.
She was a contemporary and friend of Orcadian literary giants such
as George Mackay Brown, Ernest Marwick and Robert Rendall but her
own work has never been fully recognised and appreciated.
In this book Ragnhild Ljosland attempts to put the record straight
and argues that Costie deserves a place among the top Orkney writers
and the shy lady from Kirkwall should not be dismissed as "a
spinster lawyer, who wrote dialect verse in her spare time".
