Tales from the Big Chair with Robin Lloyd-Jones

About Tales from the Big Chair with Robin Lloyd-Jones

Part of the Tales from the Big Chair series of events.

Robin has lived in Scotland for most of his adult life, having spent his childhood in India. Robin moved to Scotland to work as an Education Adviser for Strathclyde Region and soon became part of the vibrant Scottish writing scene, serving as President of the Scottish Association of Writers (1993-1996) and President of the Scottish Branch of PEN International (1997-2000), and chairing the Writers in Prison Committee which campaigns on behalf of persecuted writers. He was for several years a tutor in Creative Writing at Glasgow University.

His latest book ‘Autumn Voices‘,published at the end of June 2018, examines creativity in later life. Between 2015-17 Robin interviewed Scottish writers over 70 who were still actively writing including: Sheena Blackhall, Larry Butler, Jenni Calder, Alasdair Gray, Diana Hendry, Richard Holloway and Alison Prince.

The twenty-one established writers who speak through this book show that productivity and creativity can be extended well into later life and provide role models for future generations.

The event to be held at the Heroes Centre in Helensburgh will commence at 19.00 pm and will conclude following a Q&A session at approximately 20.30 pm.

Admission is free but by ticket only.
