This event is held in conjunction with the James Hogg in the World exhibition which is on display at the University of Stirling between May and August 2017. This exhibition depicts James Hogg as a Scottish writer of international stature and importance. It reflects new research undertaken at the University of Stirling into the worldwide circulation of Hogg’s work in newspapers and magazines, from Canada and the USA, to India, the Caribbean, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.
This event will include a tour of the exhibition led by Hogg scholar Dr Adrian Hunter.
Participants will also learn more about the University's Columbian printing press and will have the opportunity to print a souvenir piece of Hogg's writing to take away with them.
The event will culminate in a reading by author James Robertson whose book The Testament of Gideon Mack is inspired by Hogg's novel The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner.
This event is open to all and free to attend but places should be booked online in advance.
