Margins Book and Music Festival: William McIllvanney and Allan Wilson: Scottish Writing, Then and Now

Sat 25 Feb 2012 | 4pm-5pm | £5

Revered novelist William McIllvanney and newcomer Allan Wilson discuss what it means to be a writer working in Scotland, and where their writing is headed.

William McIllvanney’s career is an astonishing array of prizes, including the Whitbread Award and The Saltire Book of The Year, and bestselling novels such as Laidlaw, The Big Man and Weekend. Allan Wilson’s debut collection Wasted in Love has been hailed as a major book in Scottish writing with praise from the likes of Tom Leonard and Alan Bissett, and glowing reviews from newspapers and magazines such as the Daily Express, The Scotsman and The Sunday Times.
