Join Edinburgh Libraries and Lavender Menace for this exceptional hour with inspiring writers, poets and panellists.

Join us for an exclusive viewing of a film produced especially for Book Week Scotland. Bob Cant, editor of the first published queer oral history in Scotland (1993 and 2008) talks about his background as a gay Scottish man, his life as a writer, trade unionist and activist, and his experience organising his book. He comments on directions queer oral history might take today. His film also includes clips of four interviewees on their views of the book.
