Aye Write 2014, 21 Revolutions contributors, Friday 11th April.
21 Revolutions contributors at Aye Write!
The contributors to 21 Revolutions will appear with Laura Marney and Kirsty Logan at Aye Write! to discuss their inspirations for the project, as well as the challenges in the 21st century.
21 Revolutions is a beautiful full colour, coffee table book celebrating the Library’s twenty first anniversary and featuring work by 21 artists and 21 writers, including some of Scotland’s most celebrated women creatives. Jackie Kay, Jen Hadfield, Anne Donovan, Karen Campbell, Denise Mina, Elizabeth Reeder, A.L. Kennedy, Helen Fitzgerald, Zoe Wicomb, Muriel Gray, Louise Welsh, Janice Galloway, Lucy Skaer, Karla Black, Claire Barclay, Sam Ainsley, Corin Sworn and many others have created extraordinary art, poetry and prose, each inspired by individual artefacts in the library, across the fields of social and women’s history, feminism and equality.
21 Revolutions is not just an in-depth investigation into the Library and its resources, but also a snapshot of the wealth of artistic talent in Scotland today.
