George Mackay Brown - Memorial Lecture

For those of you who would like to know more about George Mackay Brown and his work there is an opportunity to learn more from Dr Linden Bicket, who will give the GMB Memorial Lecture on Friday 13th April at 7.30pm in the Pier Arts Centre, Stromness.

Linden, a postgraduate research student from the University of Glasgow (who wrote her PhD on GMB) recently spent six weeks in Orkney catalogueing a collection of GMB's papers, which have been placed on permanent loan with the Orkney Library and Archive by Archie and Elizabeth Bevan. Funding for the ‘George Mackay Brown: A Literary Executor’s Archive’ project came from the award of a  British Academy Small Grant.

The GMB Memorial Lecture is organised by the GMB Fellowship, and admission is £5 (£3 concessions) at the door.
