Saturday 26.5 at 1pm: Reading by writer Janis Mackay

Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are heartily invited to a reading by Janis Mackay on Saturday 26.5 at 1pm.

Janis from Scotland, is an award winning children’s author, also a poet and storyteller. Janis is spending a month on Suomenlinna, writing a new novel where she hopes to bring Scotland and Finland together in fiction. Janis will read from her children’s novel – Magnus Fin and the Ocean Quest, and also talk a little about her inspiration – while living by the sea in the far north of Scotland. She is happy to answer questions, and may have a story or a poem for us.


Warm regards,


Entrance is free and green tea will be offered. A donation of €2 (or more!) to fund the event is suggested and would be most welcome.
