Prestigious Award for Erskine Writers' Member

Erskine Writers are hugely proud of our successful crime writer Sandra McGruther, writing as Alex Gray, who has just been notified of the following award.

Hutchesons' Grammar School is to recognise former pupil Sandra McGruther (aka Alex Gray) by awarding her a George and Thomas Hutcheson Award. Previous recipients include Lord McColl of Dulwich, Baroness Ramsay of Cartvale, Prof Robert Crawford, Sir Russell Hillhouse, Carol Smillie and Richard Emanuel.

The awards are presented to former pupils who are regarded by their peers as "inspirational figures whether by virtue of their academic or professional achievements, triumph over adversity, public spiritedness or the like."

Sandra's award is to be presented at the school on December 2nd, followed by a celebration lunch in the Founders Room.

Many congratulations, Sandra!
