Gordon Lawrie spent 36 years as an Edinburgh secondary school teacher before being released on promise of good behaviour.
Harbouring a long-held ambition to write a novel, he finally unleashed his debut novel “Four Old Geezers And A Valkyrie” on the unsuspecting public first as an ebook in 2012, then in print in 2013. Set in contemporary Edinburgh, it tells the story of a group of washed-up retiral-age men who form a small rock band and have a couple of surprise YouTube hits.
Gordon is coming along to Blackhall Library on Tuesday 2nd April. to read from and talk about the novel and the process of getting it published. There will also be music. If you’d like to attend call Blackhall Library on 0131 529 5595 or email email@example.com The fun starts at 6pm
