About this Event

Join us for a book discussion with Alexander McCall Smith, a Library of Congress National Book Festival Presents event.

In the latest book in the widely beloved No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, Precious Ramotswe takes on a case for a childhood acquaintance and finds that family relationships are always a tricky proposition--even for Botswana's premier female detective.

Mma Ramotswe has reconnected with an old friend who has been having problems with her daughter. Though Precious feels compelled to lend a hand, she discovers that getting involved in family affairs is always a delicate affair. The young woman appears to be involved with a charismatic preacher. But are his ministrations entirely of a godly nature?

Elsewhere, Charlie is also struggling with a tricky matter of the heart. He wishes to propose to his girlfriend, Queenie-Queenie, but he's struggling to come up with a bride price that will impress her father. When Queenie-Queenie's brother offers to help by giving him a job, the offer may not be quite what Charlie expected.

Signed copies of To The Land of Long Lost Friends are available for pre-purchase during ticket registration. Additional books will be available for purchase at the event. The event is free and open to the public; however, tickets are required for entry. Seating is on a first come, first served basis and a ticket does not guarantee entry into the event.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
