Speaker: James Robertson
James Robertson is an award-winning poet and writer of fiction. His novels, which often have political themes, include Joseph Knight, The Testament of Gideon Mack and And the Land Lay Still. His next book, to be published in June, is The Professor of Truth.
Join us and James Robertson to look at the deeper issues beyond the ‘yah-boo’ slanging match around the 2014 referendum. What do we all need to be thinking about to come to an informed view and how do we want to conduct a national conversation that excites and involves us all?
