Remembering Alasdair

Mitchell Library | 6pm – 7.15pm | FREE

This event is free but ticketed on a first come basis, email ayewrite@

glasgowlife.org.uk with subject line ‘Alasdair Gray’ to book.

Alasdair Gray spent seven decades making imagined things. From

murals to portraits, novels to plays, landscapes to poems, stories and

polemics, his work across space and form has had a trans-formative

effect on Scottish culture and especially the city of Glasgow. On

29th December 2019, Alasdair passed away. He was to appear with

his biographer, Rodge Glass, at Aye Write to discuss his new book,

Purgatory. Instead, this special free event curated by Glass brings

together those who knew him to pay tribute to the man and read

from his work. Featuring Bernard MacLaverty, Alan Spence, Janice

Galloway, Sorcha Dallas, Alan Bissett and more.
