The Western Baths in Glasgow opens its doors for an evening of water- and swimming-pooled themed literature, inspired by the Victorian swimming pool.
Taking place at various locations within the Baths, the evening will feature readings from a variety of contemporary Scottish authors’ works, across poetry, fiction and non-fiction. There’ll be murder, competition, and intrigue, as well as imaginative dives into the depths, encounters with magical aquatic beasts, and meditations on the restorative powers of water.
During the course of the evening, you’ll also have the opportunity to see the original swimming pool and a floor mosaic created by Alasdair Gray for the Western Baths.
The evening will end in the Western Baths’ newly refurbished bar.
Join us for an immersive event!
