The Sherlock Holmes Society of Scotland

Barry Young of Young's Interesting Books noticed something unusal, there are over 400 Sherlock Holmes Appreciation societies throughout the world but not a single one in the birthplace of his creator. Barry has therefore set out to correct this and is founding Scotland's first Sherlock Holmes Society right here in the Southside. He has set up a Facebook page about it here The Sherlock Holmes Society of Scotland.
As yet, they have no affilication with any other societies and the name of this page is a temporary idea, which may change after the members discuss an appropriate title for the group.
"Even if you've never read any of the 60 short stories or novels,... and just like the movie or the TV series, don't be shy. Anyone with an enthusiasm for the greatest fictional character ever created is very welcome."
The first meeting of this fun new group will be taking place Wednesday 29 September in The bar at The Boswell, Mansionhouse Road,Glasgow G41 3DN. Facebook link to the event here.
Looks like a lot of fun, sitting in comfortable chairs and chatting about good books.
