Scottish Novels on Screen
Join the writer of Hallam Foe for a discussion of the place of Scottish literature in cinema.
There are the ones that hit big. There are the ones that falter. Then there are the long-awaited projects that have never quite come to be (just where is that epic screen version of Alasdair Gray's Lanark?). The fortunes of Scottish novels in the arena of film is discussed by a panel including Peter Jinks, author of the novel Hallam Foe, and Alan Spence, author, poet and Artistic Director of Aberdeen's Word Festival. This event is presented in association with Scottish Screen and the Edinburgh International Book Festival, and chaired by Andrea Gibb, screenwriter of the much-loved Scottish films Afterlife and Dear Frankie.
