Raymond Carver: A tribute night

Wednesday 11th February, 2015 6.30pm-9pm

STUC Building, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow, G3 6NG

Considered by many critics to be the most important short story writer of the twentieth century, Raymond Carver (1938-1988) continues to influence new generations of writers. Stories such as Cathedral, Will You Please be Quiet, Please? and I Could See the Smallest Things are cited by writers and readers as contemporary classics and he is regarded as a major innovator and exponent of the short story form.

This tribute night will feature readings of stories and poems by Carver. In addition, works inspired by Carver and written by creative writing students of the Centre for Open Studies will be premiered. The evening will also feature music and discussion.
