Well-known writer and broadcaster Billy Kay will be in Prestonpans next week to meet pupils at Preston Lodge High School and the wider community.
An expert on Scottish culture, history and language, he will give a public talk at the Prestoungrange Gothenburg during his visit to the town on Tuesday, December 4.
Billy (pictured) has produced and presented TV and radio programmes which have been aired all over the world. He is also an accomplished author and has written a number of books – most recently on the Scottish Diaspora, The Scottish World.
This book has been one of the inspirations behind the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry, the latest initiative by the Prestoungrange Arts Festival.
Billy has become an advisor to the project and has been impressed with the enthusiasm for Scots heritage in Prestonpans.
