Roddy Maclean (Ruairidh MacIlleathain) is an award-winning author, broadcaster, educator and storyteller. He is well known for his environmental education courses which explore the links between Gaelic and nature, and he is the originator of the bimedia (radio/print) programmes Litir do Luchd-ionnsachaidh and Litir Bheag for Gaelic learners, which have listeners in many countries.
He’ll speak about his three Gaelic novels in the historical political genre, which blend historical fact and real persons with creative fiction and imaginary characters, in settings varying from the struggle for Irish independence to the assassination of JFK.
The session will be in English, with readings in Gaelic.
Gaelic speakers and learners at all levels welcome.
