Writers at Wright Presents Alexander McCall Smith at Unity Temple

Event date: 

Monday, November 11, 2013 - 7:00pm

Please join us for a special evening with beloved New York Times bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith, author of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.

In the latest book in the bestselling series of mysteries set in Botswana, Mma Ramotswe is asked to help the proprietor of the Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon, who is having trouble with her business. The salon has suffered some unfortunate events, including face cream that burns the skin. Could someone be trying to put the salon out of business? Meanwhile, on the home front, Mma Makutsi is going to have a baby. But in Botswana—a land where family has always been held above all else but which is on the crossroads between old and new—this may be cause for as much controversy as celebration.
