Brechin library will play host to local crime author and winner of the Dundee Book Prize, Chris Longmuir, on Tuesday, November 26, from 2 to 3 p.m.

Chris will talk about the characters in her Dundee crime series that started with ‘Dead Wood’ featuring Detective Sergeant Bill Murphy.

Tickets for the event are free and can be reserved at any Angus library.

Crime might be your scene so why not attend Brechin library’s reminiscence group on Tuesday, December 3, at 2 p.m. when Brechiner Mhairi Pyott will attend the group to chat about her new book ‘Nae Mammie’s Kisses’.

As well as discussing it Mhairi will also be signing copies of the book.

Mhairi was brought up in Brechin and has previously released the title ‘For the Brechiner’ which is a collection of articles written by her which originally appeared in the Brechin Advertiser.
