On 9th June Iain Banks’ death was announced. Like many, we were devastated by the news. Iain was a tremendous supporter of libraries and we were lucky enough to host several visits from this giant of the Scottish literary scene over the years.
Here’s some film of Iain captivating the crowd at Central Library back in 2010.
We wanted to celebrate Iain’s massive contribution to Scottish life and literature, and we wanted to involve his devoted readers, so we’ve got together with our friends at Blackwell’s Bookshop to host The Iain Banks Book Quiz.
If you’re an avid fan of the great man then come along with your team – of up to 6 people – on Thursday 25 July at 6.30pm.
