Rather More Than Thirty-Nine Steps; Reflections on John Buchan, the Scottish Polymath

Thursday 28 March, 2pm

Rather More Than Thirty-Nine Steps is an illustrated talk about a remarkable man who amazed his contemporaries with his versatility and range, yet is mostly remembered today for a thriller that he wrote for his own amusement in six weeks whilst ill in bed. The talk will be given by Ursula Buchan, whose biography of her grandfather – Beyond the Thirty-Nine Steps: A Life of John Buchan – will be published by Bloomsbury in April 2019.
