Author Charlie Laidlaw joins us with his latest book Everyday Magic for the monthly Speakeasy. Celebrate the end of the month and the beginning of the festive season at The Edinburgh Bookshop, where gin and bookish chat will be flowing.

About Everyday Magic:

Carole Gunn leads an unfulfilled life and knows it.  She’s married to someone who may, or may not, be in New York on business and, to make things worse, the family’s deaf cat has been run over by an electric car.

But something has been changing in Carole’s mind.  She’s decided to revisit places that hold special significance for her.  She wants to better understand herself, and whether the person she is now is simply an older version of the person she once was.

Instead, she’s taken on an unlikely journey to confront her past, present and future.

Everyday Magic is an uplifting book filled with humour and poignancy, and reminds us that, while our pasts make us who we are, we can always change the course of our futures.
