The curious mind of Ian Rankin

Join us to find what makes Ian Rankin curious

The RSE has invited Ian Rankin to discuss the important moments in his life, get to the heart of issues he cares about, and the inspirations behind his work.

Eve Poole, Chief Executive of the RSE, will be in conversation with one of the world’s best-known crime writers and creator of Edinburgh’s local Inspector Rebus, as we look to explore the curious mind of Ian Rankin.
