Dundee at a Glance

Dundee is a most dynamic city, always changing, always innovative. Once a major linen centre, then, as Juteopolis, the centre of the world’s jute trade, it was also the port where the best Arctic ships in the world were built, the home of a line of clippers and the city where the Beano is still written and published.

Yet there is far more to Dundee; this is a city of sieges and battles, of castles and witches, of amazing universities and the most welcoming and accepting people anywhere.

From twelve noon on Saturday 03 December 2016 I am signing copies of my book, Dundee at a Glance in Waterstones, Dundee. Highly illustrated, the book looks at the streets, public buildings and people of Dundee. Given such a subject, the research was fascinating and far more was left out than could ever be included- yet there is much to interest.

Please come along, make yourself known and, Dundee being what it is, have a blether!
