Joy of Spines

Wednesday 29 November, 6 pm

Right in the heart of Edinburgh are 120 miles of underground shelves that store the National Library of Scotland's collection of 26 million things. Graeme Hawley — performance poet, slam winner, and General Collections Manager at the Library — presents this slide show and found poem, comprised entirely of book spines. Amusing, thought-provoking, and unexpectedly moving.
