Hag Storm - Children's Book Launch
When & Where
The witches are gathering...
Twelve-year-old Rab spends all of his time doing back-breaking work on his family’s farm instead of attending school, but when he finds a hag stone in one of the fields, everything changes. Looking through its circular hole, he sees witches gathering in a coming storm, and they’ve set their sights on his family. Can Rab save his sisters from the clutches of the witches’ coven before their ceremony in the auld kirk?
Filled with mystery and magic, Hag Storm is a spooky historical adventure with a supernatural twist based on the life of Robert Burns.
Join author Victoria Williamson for an interactive book launch for eight to fourteen-year-olds to explore the
characters and folklore in Hag Storm. With book readings, activities, and Halloween fun for all the family,
this event will be a great start to the weekend’s festivities, as well as providing a thought-provoking insight
into the life of the young Robert Burns.
This event will take place within the Robertson Room located in the main museum building on Murdoch's
Lone. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times. This is a FREE event but tickets must be reserved
as there will be a limited capacity in operation. Reserve tickets on Eventbrite here:
Signed books will be available at the launch and 20% of the author royalties will be donated to the Robert
Burns World Federation.
