Singing 4 books at the Fergus Scottish Festival

All right, singing may be an overstatement. But four books, four half-hour talks, THAT is going to happen.

On August 13 and 14, Ken will see to it in the Heritage Village at the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games.

This oldest festival of its kind in North America attracts thousands to Fergus, Ontario, ninety minutes west of Toronto. We are talking heavy-events competitions (think caber tossing), Highland dancers, more than 40 clans, whisky tastings, a McKiddie’s Centre, Celtic Musicians, Hollywood actors, and even celebrated writers.

You may have heard of Diana Gabaldon, creator of The Outlander series of novels — a series that has evolved into an international TV sensation? She will be there.

And, yes, Ken will be there too with his four Scottish books: Fatal Passage, How the Scots Invented Canada, Celtic Lightning, and Flight of the Highlanders. He will give four separate talks, one on each book, over the two days.

The detailed schedule is still evolving, so stay tuned at the link above. But already you know you are ready for this. See you in the Heritage Village, aye!
