2016 marks 70 years with James Kelman.
This day-long event will celebrate Kelman's life and art thus far, including
- tributes from luminaries in Scottish writing
- films and discussion tracing the influence of his writing and politics
- unique performances interpreting Kelman's work in music, theatre and dramatic recital
Look forward to appearances from Tom Leonard, Liz Lochhead, Peter Kravitz, Andrea Gibb, Pat Kane, Hannah McGill, Roxy Harris, Pauline Goldsmith, Gordon Munro, Derek McCluckie -- and many more.
Tickets are FREE but limited, and will be released via this page at 9am on Wednesday 19 October. Attendees will need to provide their own lunch and coffees (there is an excellent cafe within the library). Regrettably the venue -- the Mitchell's Jeffery Room -- is only accessible via stairs.
