Since 2008, Barr has hosted the Literary Salon, which celebrated its 10th Birthday at the Savoy, with Tracey Thorn, Adam Kay and Rose McGowan. He has also been drinks critic for the Sunday Times and has a column ‘Novel Destinations’ in High Life Magazine. He has also run with Corney and Barrow the successful series A Book and A Bottle, live tasting-readings. His TV show The Big Scottish Book Club brought literature programming back to BBC Scotland.
Maggie & Me won The Political Humour and Satire Book of the Year at The Paddy Power Political Book Awards, Sunday Times Memoir of the Year and Stonewall Writer of the Year.
Creative Conversations is programmed by the University of Glasgow Creative Writing Programme and funded by the Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
