Popular Literary Lunches Return to Winter Words!

The popular Literary Lunch sessions are back for Winter Words 2017 at Pitlochry Festival Theatre, with Catherine Czerkawska kicking things off on Thursday 16th February at 12.45 pm!

Catherine will be at Winter Words discussing her book The Jewel, in which she tells the unheard story of Jean Armour – Robert Burns’ wife. Learn of an extraordinary marriage, passionate and tempestuous, revealing Jean’s indomitable strength and character. Listen with intrigue, over a delicious Scottish Lamb Casserole, rounded off with Classic Cranachan with shortbread.

Continuing the Scots’ theme on Friday 17th February, Fiona Rintoul will be talking all things Whisky – this event is a celebration of the whiskies of Islay and of the beautiful island that shaped them. A wee nip will be included, so you can full understand the magic!  You will also enjoy a mouth-watering dish of Breast of Chicken, with roasted haggis – how fitting!

On Saturday 18th February, Clover Stroud tells her inspirational, awe-inspiring story: travelling from gypsy camps in Ireland, to the rodeos of West Texas and into Russia’s war-torn Caucasus, Clover eventually found her way back to England’s Vale of the White Horse. Join us for this gripping story over a Grilled Loin of North Sea Cod and for dessert, Trio of Chocolate Mousse Terrine.

Finally, Ian Stephen will be with us on Sunday 19th February to talk about his book Waypoints, which describes Ian’s love for all things maritime. His stories are enchanting and lyrical, featuring stunning illustrations of each vessel drawn by his wife, Catherine Morrison. A scrumptious Seafood Chowder will be served at this event, followed by mouth-watering Apple and Mixed Berry Crumble, served with Custard.

Our Literary Lunch sessions are always popular so book early to avoid disappointment. Each event includes a 2 course lunch, tea or coffee and a glass of wine or soft drink – for just £23.50!  Don’t forget to get a copy of your book signed…
