Now in its third year, Previously…, the festival of Scottish History, just gets bigger and better. Here are four ways you can get involved:
1. Share your memories of Corstorphine
Corstorphine residents past and present are invited to the library at 6.30pm on Wednesday 20th November, for an illustrated talk on the history of the village followed by your opportunity to share a Corstorphine memory or anecdote. If you’ve got something you’d like to share contact Corstorphine Library in advance so we can make sure there’s time to fit everyone in.
2. Celebrate one of Edinburgh’s most famous sons
Mark Robert Louis Stevenson Day on 13 November with walks, talks and afternoon tea.
3. Join The Big Book Club
Join the biggest Book Club ever as we discuss ‘The Glorious Thing’ by Christine Orr. Set in Edinburgh in 1916, this funny, sometimes tragic, beautifully written novel centres on a group of young people trying to find their place in society. Orr examines the changing role of women, politics and religion against the backdrop of the First World War. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for your free copy of the book in advance of the event and book online to reserve places for your book group.
Our Town Stories brings the hidden stories from Edinburgh’s past to life with some amazing photographs. Find out about the country’s oldest fire brigade and read the story of the nine-year-old suffragette.
There are well over 200 other events to choose from – visit the Previously… site for details
