Publishers Acair will release 'Someone Else's Story' by the late Michael Robson at Comunn Eachdraidh Nis on Friday 15th June at 4:15pm.

Entry to this event is free and all are welcome to attend.

The book launch takes place towards the end of a full day of commemoration and special events, celebrating the life and work of Michael Robson, as organised by the Islands Book Trust and Comunn Eachdraidh Nis.

In 'Someone Else's Story' the historian Michael Robson has in his own words shared with the reader: “a tiny fraction of the mass of incidental, intriguing interest offered by the people, the landscape and the seas of the Outer Hebrides”.

He has drawn on a deep personal knowledge and a rich written archive to compile 'Someone Else’s Story'. These stories are drawn from communities across the islands from South Uist to Uig in Lewis and as far as distant Rona. A

ll are accompanied by the author’s meticulous notes and references resulting in a book which the reader can chose to enjoy simply for the pleasure of a good story or as a source book for island heritage.

'Someone Else's Story' is now available to pre-order on
