Alexander McCall Smith

Join one of the world's most prolific and best-loved authors, Alexander McCall Smith, for one night only in Melbourne.

RMIT Culture is thrilled to be partnering with the Wheeler Centre for this in-conversation with Alexander McCall Smith. With over one hundred books, McCall Smith is one of the world's most prolific and beloved writers. His work – which includes the Corduroy Mansions series, the Isabel Dalhousie novels and the world's longest-running serial novel, 44 Scotland Street – has been translated into over forty-six languages, becoming bestsellers throughout the world. His highly successful No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series has sold over 25 million copies alone.

Now, to mark the release of not one but three books in the past year, McCall Smith returns to Australia to reflect on his expansive career over four decades. Join us for one night only, with host Melissa Cranenburgh, and listen to them chat about his extensive body of work and share stories from his varied life in literature.
