      EVENT DETAILS
      Edinburgh: The Two Cities

      Edinburgh: The Two Cities Tuesday   4 June, 5:30pm Jenni Calder and Tim Bell share their experiences of Edinburgh and Leith through literature from the likes of Irvine Welsh and Walter Scott. Calder’s Essence of Edinburgh explores the city through its literature, across the old and new towns and beyond. Bell’s Choose Life Choose Leith brings Welsh’s Trainspotting back to its raw origins of Leith in the 1980s, a time of Thatcherism, social inequality and the HIV pandemic.  Journeying through this most ‘walkable’ of cities, Calder and Bell bring a new appreciation of Edinburgh into being, a ‘city of fascinating unpredictability’.
