This Thursday, Oct 13, we are delighted to be presenting Andrew Greig, one of the leading Scottish poets of his generation, and a prizewinning novelist. He is also well-known for his writing on mountaineering. He is the author of the acclaimed That Summer (novel, 2000), This Life, This Life (poetry, 2006), and ‘Getting Higher: the Complete Mountain Poems’ (Polygon 2011). He will be reading from new collection of poems As Though We Were Flying, just published, and also from At the Loch of the Green Corrie, (2010) a memoir of a fishing trip in honour of the poet Norman MacCaig.
We are also delighted to be hosting a Gaelic/Gaidhlig Literature Forum in association with Glasgow Life, on the 27th of October. This is an opportunity for literary organisations to find out how they can work more closely with Gaelic writers and Gaelic material. There will be the opportunity to meet Gaelic writers and hear some short readings.
Both events will take place at 7pm in the CCA Clubroom, on the 2nd floor, Centre for Contemporary Arts, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3DJ. ADMISSION FREE.
