At The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, for Book Week Scotland

On Thursday 30 November I'll be taking part in 'You were also there' at The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh.

Part of the Book Week Scotland programme, and held in the context of Jacqueline Donachie's exhibition 'Right Here Among Them', this is an event with a pronounced social-political dimension, and also features Julie Morrissy as well as Scots author and NHS campaigner Rab Wilson and Edinburgh charity Upward Mobility’s band The UpMo Experience.

The event is free but ticketed (book via Eventbrite) and runs from 5.30pm till 8.00pm.

With thanks to Iain Morrison for the invitation.
