overview

Wednesday 6th March, 1pm

This free event takes place at Barrhead Foundry

Join historian and author Dr. Stuart Nisbet, as he gives an illustrated talk based on his own personal journey to uncover the truth about Scotland and slavery. A journey which led to the publication of his first novel The Book of Here and There.

Dr. Stuart Nisbet is well known in the area for his local history publications and in recent years he has worked as a freelance tutor for East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure. On a wider basis, for more than 20 years, he has been one of the leading researchers on Scotland and slavery. In 2015 Stuart had a chapter on the first book on Scotland and slavery: Tom Devine’s Recovering Scotland’s Slavery Past.

After the talk, Stuart will be signing copies of The Book of Here and There. Loosely based on the personal detective trail uncovered in the talk, the novel tells the story of the hunt for a Scottish slave owner, but also through the voice of his enslaved scribe, Cato.

Count Almaviva lives with his Countess on their estate near Seville. The Count has his eye on his wife’s maid Susanna, who is about to marry the Count’s servant, Figaro. Much to Figaro’s dismay, the Count plans to seduce Susanna on the night of the wedding. Meanwhile, Cherubino, the Count’s young page, has a crush on the Countess, but has just been dismissed after being discovered with Barbarina, the gardener Antonio’s daughter.

Figaro decides he must foil the Count’s attempt to seduce his wife-to-be and enlists the help of the Countess, Susanna and Cherubino – the latter disguising himself as a woman. A series of mistaken identities, misunderstandings and thwarted plans ensue, with all members of the household participating as each tries to get what – and who – they want.
