Bute Noir book 2019 meets museum artefact No. 1

IMG_2035The countdown is on for Bute Noir 2019 and we are very excited. Time to start this year’s ‘Bute Noir book meets Museum Artefact’. We have  26 authors this year and seven events taking place in the Museum

No. 1 in the series is from the pen of Ann Cleeves. A young black-backed gull meets ‘The Seagull’. It is tempting to think that this is a very small book but it is in fact a very large gull from the Museum’s Natural History collection. Ann Cleeves is the creator of Vera Stanhope and Jimmy Perez and she has now started a new series featuring Matthew Venn. Ann will be at Rothesay Library on Saturday 3rd of August and her events are already sold out.
