James Kelman at 70: A Celebration
Sat 19 November 2016, 10:00 – 16:30 GMT
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, Kenny Glenaan, Pat Kane, Hannah McGill, Steve Davismoon, Roxy Harris, Pauline Goldsmith, Gordon Munro, Derek McCluckie -- and more.
The event programme is now available to download.
This (free) event is SOLD OUT. 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.
