The wonderful author Elizabeth Wein will be chairing a discussion with visiting American author Jane Yolen and St Andrews author Robert J. Harris on their collaborative novel, Girl in a Cage.
There will be an oppurtunity to ask questions and the authors will be available afterwards to sign copies.
When her father, Robert the Bruce, becomes King of Scotland, Marjorie Bruce becomes a princess. But Edward Longshanks, the ruthless King of England, has set his sights on Robert and his family. Marjorie is captured and imprisoned in a wooden cage in the centre of a town square, exposed to wind, rain, the taunts of the townspeople, and the scorn of Longshanks himself.
Marjorie knows that despite her suffering and pain, she is the daughter of noble Robert the Bruce and she will make her father, and her country, proud. For a true princess is a princess, whether in a castle or in a cage.
