Happenings 15: pink fizz and goodbyes
July 31, 2009
This week behind the scenes at the library:
Julie started to strike our Edwin Morgan exhibition, to make room for the late, great Ivor Cutler and our summer exhibition, A Stuggy Pren
We are in the throes of organising the unveiling of the Burns Banner, a project which has taken artist Stephen Raw the length and breadth of the country and produced over 600 letters from places as far flung as the Antarctic! You can see the glorious efforts people made at our Burns Banner website!
Along with the lovely Anna from Edinburgh City of Literature, we helped the guys at JUMP Marketing come up with quotes for some of the windows on St Andrew Square! Watch this space – we’ll be delighted to show you pictures when they’re in place…
Lizzie and Julie gave a tour of the library to the very eminent Indian historian Professor Baron De and a delegation from Kolkata.
We bade a fond farewell to Lisa – our Edwin Morgan Archivist. Hopefully we’ll get a mini interview in with her next week, before she leaves, about her role in the archive and what she plans to do next. We used her imminent departure as an excuse to visit our new local pub, Holyrood 9A, and found ourselves very impressed with the cherry beer. This afternoon we also indulged in a tea party with a kick of pink fizz! We also enjoyed two types of cake: the ever-wonderful lemon drizzle, and a this is no ordinary Swiss roll, this is an M&S cappuccino Swiss roll!
Till next week! Good weekends all!
