Sepia Time & Blue Space book launch with Archie MacAlister & Margaret Bennett
5 October @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Raised in a family of sea-faring Glasgow Highlanders, Archie MacAlister’s love of stories began in boatyards and sail-lofts. Wartime years in Argyll broadened his horizons as he listened to grandparents and local worthies such as the shoemaker ‘with a mouthful of segs’. Others showed him the landscape of Diarmuid and Grainne, told him of ancient times, sang songs and handed on the traditional wisdom of the Gael. As a student of architecture in Edinburgh, he was drawn to Patrick Geddes’s interpretation of the environment and a ‘scholarship placement’ in Central Europe set him on his way to explore global culture.
Margaret Bennett invites you to the fireside to share a conversation with Archie MacAlister, whose compelling story-telling will lure you to the dockyards, the deck, the construction site or the pub. Bring your own glass and together we’ll launch Sepia Time and Blue Space.
This event will be held on Zoom.
