Sally Magnusson: Music in the Dark

Saturday 12th August, 2023
Lodge Stage, Lodge Grounds
3pm – 4pm


Best selling author, journalist and broadcaster Sally Magnusson brings us her latest historical fiction, Music in the Dark. Inspired by the true experiences of Sally’s great-grandmother, Annie McKechnie Baird, who was evicted from her own family home in a township on the isle of Mull in 1863, Music in the Dark is suffused with poetry and looks with searing honesty at love in older age – its cost and its beauties – whilst shedding light on female resistance during the Highland Clearances, and depicting, with poignant empathy, the long-term physical and mental effects the past can have on us.
