About The Event
Originally refused publication in London because it was deemed critical of the English, Auntie Robbo was first published in the U.S. in 1940. With an introduction by Ann Scott Moncrieff ’s daughter, this is the authorised republication by Scotland Street Press.
ANN SCOTT MONCRIEFF was born in Orkney in 1910 and died in Nairn in 1943. During her short life she was a journalist, writer and a poet who was immortalized by Edwin Muir in his poem To Ann.
