Galt Society Commemoration

Today, the Society held its own commemoration at Galt's grave in Greenock. About 25 members gathered to see a wreath being laid by the award-winning author Andrew O'Hagan who spoke of how Galt had inspired him. A lament was played by fiddler Alison McNeill, below:



Members then enjoyed a lunch, hosted by Andrew, where they heard a talk on Galt's later novels by emeritus Professor of Scottish Literature, Douglas Gifford. We hope to put the text of that talk on the website in due course.
