Edwin Morgan - 24 Hours
The Big Read
Friday 25 January - Saturday 26 January

To celebrate Scotland's greatest living poet Edwin Morgan, the citizens of Glasgow are coming together to coordinate a non stop 24 hour read of his poetry starting on Friday 25th Jan.

The event will involve encouraging as many people in schools, libraries and workplaces to take some time read out loud at least one of his poems.

The central focus of the day will be the Gallery of Modern Art in Royal Exchange Square where a 24 hour read of Edwin Morgan poetry is taking place from 12 noon till 12 noon. Everyone can come down and take part reading their favourite Edwin Morgan poem and it will also be an opportunity to receive a free specially produced Edwin Morgan limited edition collection for those participating.

A host of celebrities and writers have agreed to drop in during the day and read their own favourite by him during the day and it promises to be a great event.
