Acclaimed Scottish novelist Louise Welsh will read from her sixth book which has been garnering rave reviews and featured on the BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime programme this year. Kirsty Wark stated, ‘I was with Louise Welsh’s gutsy, gripping heroine ... every step of the way’, while The Independent on Sunday has called it ‘superb popular fiction – a box set waiting  to happen’.

Among her other awards are the Saltire First Book Award, Spirit of Scotland Writing Award and the City of Glasgow Lord Provost’s  Award and international fellowships  such as the Villa Hellebosch and Hawthornden. She has also produced many short stories, and written for the radio and the stage. Louise has been writer in residence at The University of Glasgow and Glasgow School of Art.
