Edinburgh Makar's new book

A local resident in Newington and Edinburgh's Makar, Ron Butlin, has released a new book called 'Ghost Moon'. It tells the story of his mother's life and also highlights his love for the city of Edinburgh, which has inspired much of his writing.

Ron Butlin in an interview with the Evening News:
'My mum didn’t tell my sister Pam and I anything about her life and what had happened until we were in our 20s. It came as an amazing shock.
She felt really ashamed but we told her she was so courageous, so determined against the odds.'

Evening News: "Makar Ron Butlin pens ‘love song’ to the city"
