When: 22 May 2014, 6pm
Where: Hemma, The Tun, Holyrood, Edinburgh.
The Centre for Scottish Public Policy warmly invites you to the latest Meet the Author event. Alexander Moffat and Andy Riach will debate and discuss an oft-neglected aspect of the referendum debate: the Scottish arts.
Following the publication of their recent book ‘The Arts of Independence’, the two authors will provide a fascinating slant on to Scotland’s unique creative history and its role in Scotland’s political future. The event will be a great chance to meet the authors in person as well as to network with CSPP members.
The event is free for CSPP members and students, and £6 for non-members/non-students.
Booking is essential. To book, please go here.
We very much look forward to seeing you.
