Two new exciting book festivals with a difference come together to celebrate their launch and their events in the Govanhill International Festival. Free.
6.00pm: Welcome to Govanhill Book Festival
Writer Gerry Hassan and Govanhill Baths board member Vivienne Wilson welcome and introduce the book festival.
6.05pm: Govanhill: More United than Divided
Govanhill has changed in recent times with huge social transformation, new enterprises and initiatives as well as being covered in the press with often negative, unhelpful headlines.
Join journalist and Govanhill resident Catriona Stewart to discuss what is really happening with community champion Raza Sadiq, who has run the Active Life Club in the area for 20 years, Graham Steel: a Govanhill resident for 30 years, who is secretary of Govanhill Community Garden, Marian McSeveney, who runs the Govanhill Go! Social media pages, and Rahela Cirpaci of the pioneering Romano Lav working with the Roma community in Govanhill.
