Sally Magnusson

Author and Broadcaster and our Host for the Conference

Sally is a broadcaster and author, who has presented a wide range of programmes for the BBC, including Reporting Scotland, and written a number of best-selling books. The 2014 memoir of her mother’s dementia, Where Memories Go: Why dementia changes everything was credited with raising awareness of the impact of this widespread brain condition. In 2013 she founded the charity Playlist for Life to encourage access to personal music for people with dementia. She received an MBE for this work in 2023.

Her 2018 fictional debut, The Sealwoman’s Gift, based on the true story of a 17th century corsair raid on Iceland, was shortlisted for six literary awards. Her second, The Ninth Child, blends Victorian social history with ancient folklore in the Trossachs. Music in the Dark, inspired by the women who resisted the Highland Clearances, was published earlier this year to critical acclaim.
