We are thrilled to invite you to a captivating event featuring Bill Lindsay, as he delves into the remarkable life of his great-great-grandfather through his book, WILLIAM SCHAW LINDSAY: VICTORIAN ENTREPRENEUR.  

Born in Ayr and orphaned by the age of 10, William was brought up by his uncle then ran away to sea at the age of 16. Within the pages of Lindsay’s book, experience the gripping tale of a young cabin boy rising through the ranks to ultimately command his own ship and become an MP. William’s exploits include encounters with piracy, near-death experiences, and vivid accounts of life at sea during the 1830s. 

Don’t miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to witness history come to life! Join us for an afternoon of inspiration, tales of resilience, and a celebration of Ayrshire people! 

To confirm your attendance, please telephone Carnegie Library on 01292 286385.
