Donald S Murray – writer & poet

There’s an opportunity soon to hear author Donald S Murray discuss his latest book, Red Star Over Hebrides, in Stornoway.

As well as appearing at the Metagama Tattoo in the town, Donald will be appearing at Stornoway Library for the ‘home’ book launch at 2 pm on Saturday, August 12.

The event will celebrate this latest literary offering from Donald’s pen. As well as readings from the book, he will also offer insights and chat with the audience.

Donald is originally from the Isle of Lewis and was raised in the district of Ness, where his childhood had an immeasurable impact on his writing.

Red Star Over Hebrides is one such example where the nurturing nature of his environment would later inspire his literature.

In his new book, Donald draws upon the relatively little-known links between the Outer Hebrides and the former Soviet Union.

The result is a tour de force of a book that’s a remarkable collection of songs, stories and verse rooted in post-war Lewis.
