About this Event

About the Book

The magician who inspired Harry Houdini, a Nazi-fighting nurse and the doctor who discovered the importance of handwashing – just some of the extraordinary Aberdonians who are profiled in this book. This is local history like you have never seen it before: intriguing, bizarre and stranger-than-fiction. Featuring more than 36 biographies of people connected to the North East of Scotland, this book guarantees you will see the history – and people – of Aberdeenshire in a whole new light.

About the Author

This is Lia's first book, but she has wealth of local knowledge from guiding tours for more than five years, firstly in Edinburgh and then in her hometown of Aberdeen. As well as tours of the streets of Aberdeen, she has done tours of the Maritime Museum and nearby Dunnottar Castle. In 2016, she set up Scot Free Tours to challenge people’s perceptions of Aberdeen by telling them lesser-known stories of the city. Scot Free Tours is now the top-ranked tour provider in Aberdeen, collecting TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence in 2018 and 2019.
