In the Deveron Press centenary year we focussed on republishing works by and about Leatham. The Centenary proper will end in May 2017 with the publication of the Centenary Collection Ten in all its glory - AND with the first NEW publication from the Deveron Press in more than 70 years.
We are happy to announce that this will be 'Sanners Gow's Tales and Folklore of The Buchan by Macduff native Pat Hutchison. It is a collection of 23 short stories written in the language of the North East - Doric.
Leatham said ‘publishing is an adventure’ and we've certainly found it to be that in the past year. It is in that spirit that the new Deveron Press are happy to publish this volume of Pat’s stories as the first post Centenary Collection publishing ‘adventure.’ We are sure James Leatham would have approved of the stories and the man.
The official launch of the book will be on Saturday 20th May at Municipal Buildings Turriff, but you'll be able to pick up a copy sooner than that - watch this space - we're going through final proof stages right now and hope it'll be ready for pre-publication copies just after Easter. If our 'adventure' doesn't throw any more jeopardy our way between now and then!
