Next Galt Memorial Lecture


Acclaimed novelist James Robertson will be delivering the second in the relaunched Galt Memorial Lecture series.  Thanks to generous support from Inverclyde Council it will take place at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock at 7:00 pm on Friday 4th May and will be followed by a buffet supper with wine.  Tickets can be reserved by contacting the Society's secretary at secjgs@gmail.com. The venue is appropriate because the Beacon is on the Greenock waterfront almost on the spot where Galt began his working life.
