Donald dons his interview hat this afternoon to quiz the award-winning author, Douglas Stuart, whose debut novel, Shuggie Bain, won the 2020 Booker Prize.
The live Zoom webinar saw Donald, in his capacity as a Society of Authors in Scotland committee member, discuss with Stuart his work, creative routine and how authors can reach out and connect to readers.
This event, supported by the Society of Authors in Scotland (SoAiS), will also hear a short reading from the Scottish-American author, who will then participate in a question and answer session.
As well as an armful of literary prizes for Shuggie Bain, the novel is a New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller. In addition, it is set to be translated into more than 38 languages.
Glasgow-born Stuart has lived in New York City since 2000, and his second novel, Young Mungo, is scheduled for publication in April 2022.
