A Greeting from Best-Selling Author Alexander McCall Smith to Grapevine Public Library

We are very excited that the creator of the well-known No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series and the Isabel Dalhousie series as well as numerous other books has sent a special message to our library from his home in Edinburgh, Scotland at this time when the entire world is sheltering in place.

Alexander McCall Smith has fans all over the world and his books have been translated into 46 languages. He has also written stand-alone fiction, non-fiction and Children’s books. Here, Mr. McCall Smith talks about his new Swedish Detective series featuring the likable Ulf Varg and the detective’s lip-reading dog Marten. The author also provides us with a sneak peek into his latest book in the No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, “How To Raise An Elephant” coming out this fall.

Our Librarian Romany (Romy) Kadurugamuwa, a longtime fan, met the author a couple of years ago at a Literary Festival in Sri Lanka. Recently, she wrote him and asked if he would be willing to share a message with his readers at this time. He graciously obliged, sharing his love for Texas and providing some updates on his latest books.
