On Friday 7th March Central Library hosts a book launch in association with our friends at Luath Press – and if you’d like to join us we have tickets available.
In Learning from the Lasses: Women of the Patrick Geddes Circle Walter Stephen and a bevy of Modern Geddesians investigate the women who had an influence on, or were influenced by, the Scottish thinker, Patrick Geddes.
Ranging from his mother to an Indian nun, his wife to a suffragette, this volume crosses the globe, highlighting the far-reaching influence of Geddes and the range of very different women who were linked to him in one way or another.
Starting out with his family in Scotland and giving a detailed insight into life in historic Edinburgh and the rest of the country, the text is of interest to anybody living in Scotland.
The ten ‘modern Geddesians’ who contribute to the book are Veronica Burbridge, Kate Henderson, Sofia Leonard, Kenneth MacLean, Robert Morris, Kenny Munro, Swami Narasimhananda, Sian Reynolds, Anne-Michelle Slater and Walter Stephen.
