AGM & Anthology launch, 5 May 2021

Lapidus Scotland warmly invites you to their online Annual General Meeting event, followed by the launch of our new anthology, Seven Journeys.

Both events take place on Wednesday 5 May 2021. The AGM and the launch are linked, but separate, events, so you can come to either or both.

Book your place for the AGM at 5pm here.

Book your place for the anthology launch at 6.30pm here.

The AGM (5.00–6.00pm) will formally present the Annual Report on work during the 2019/20 financial year, elect a committee and give an overview of the work of Lapidus Scotland.

We are looking for new members of the management committee, so please consider this chance to get involved with our work. When circumstances allow we will be having face-to-face meetings in Glasgow, but for the foreseeable future we will continue to keep most meetings on line.

The AGM will be followed by a launch (6.30–8.00pm) of our new anthology, Seven Journeys, edited by Andy Jackson. There will be readings from contributors, and from our guest author Gerda Stevenson.

Gerda Stevenson, who has been a guest author for some of our writing groups, is an award-winning writer, actor, director, singer-songwriter, working in theatre, television, radio, film, and opera. Her poetry, drama and prose have been widely published, staged, and broadcast. She has written extensively for for BBC Radio 4 – original plays, as well as dramatisations of classic Scottish novels. Her second poetry collection, Quines: Poems in tribute to women of Scotland (2018, 2nd edition 2019), charts the contribution made to Scottish history and society by remarkable women of Scotland, from Neolithic times to the 21st century – singers, politicians, a fish-gutter, queens, a dancer, a marine engineer, a salt seller, scientists, sportswomen, including a whole football team, and many more.
