Mary Quaile Club event: book launch with Kate Hunter 13th July 2019


We were delighted to welcome Kate Hunter to discuss her  new novel Common Cause, a sequel to her first novel The Case Room,  published by Fledgling Press. Both novels   are set in Edinburgh, beginning in the 1890s, and follow the fortunes of Isa, who very unsually is working as skilled compositor in the male -dominated world of printing.

In conversation with Bernadette Hyland Kate explained that  she had became interested in this topic when she learned from the 1911 census  that her grand-mother had been a compositor. She had done some  extensive research in Scottish archives and had also done a type-setting course.   Kate  had begun writing after retiring from work.

There was a good discussion with the audience and all agreed that it  had been a very enjoyable event.

Both novels can be ordered  from News From Nowhere bookshop,

Our thanks to Kate and Clare  from Fledgling Press for journeying down with the books.
