Saturday 13th October, 4pm

With Karen Campbell, Heather Middleton and a film by artist Ellie Harrison on the National Museum of Roller Derby.

Please note a change to line up at the final event, unfortunately Helen Fitzgerald is no longer able to read. Instead we have the fabulous Scottish writer Karen Campbell reading her piece inspired by the collections. Karen is the author of five novels: The Twilight TimeAfter the Fire,Shadowplay and Proof of Life – all published by Hodder & Stoughton.

Continuing our ‘Two Decades of Changing Minds’ twentieth anniversary programme, and linking with the 21 Revolutions exhibitionwhere 21 artists are showing new work at the CCA’s Intermedia Gallery, we are programming a range of related readings events. Several of the 21 writers we have commissioned to make new work inspired by the GWL collections, including Denise Mina, Elizabeth Reeder and Anne Donovan, will read their work and discuss the sources of their inspiration.
