Douglas Jackson Event

Glasgow University Writers are delighted to announce that Douglas Jackson will be coming to chat with us on 1st December, 5.30-7.30pm.

Douglas left school before the age of sixteen, and lucky chance took him to a youth placement scheme restoring a Roman marching camp in the Cheviot Hills, and his lifelong fascination with history took root. 

To date he has published three historical novels, Caligula – now translated into eleven languages – Claudius, and most recently Hero of Rome. This last novel is the beginning of a trilogy, with Defender of Rome and Avenger of Rome to follow.

Douglas worked as a journalist for over thirty years and was the Assistant Editor of The Scotsman until 2009, when he left journalism to write full-time.

This event will be held in the Edwin Morgan Room, No 5 University Gardens.  As usual, GUW invite you to bring along something to drink if you like, and will be providing glasses & a few nibbles.

If you can’t attend this event but are interested in future ones let us know & we’ll send you a schedule.

Best wishes

Glasgow University Writers
