Glints of Gold - exhibition and reading - 10th February
Last year, the Glints writing group were awarded funding from Book Week Scotland to go towards a publication and two launch events. The theme for 2017 Book Week Scotland was‘Nourish’ and we chose one of the sub-headings suggested for further exploration: ‘Feast’.
The book forms the sum of our collective efforts and includes recipes for elderflower champagne, lasagna and soda bread as well as reflections on childhood, old age, the natural world, breakers yards and how to cope with bad coffee!
In preparing the book, we collaborated with the artist and illustrator, Drew Hillier, who prepared accompanying images for many of the stories and poems. This event at the Upstairs Gallery profiles this fruitful collaborative effort and the book itself by publically exhibiting some the texts and images side by side.
