In the lead up to Gray Day friends, family and admirers of Alasdair Gray have been reading their favourite passages from Lanark.
Rodge Glass, Fran Healy and Rhona Warwick are just some of Alasdair’s admirers who have contributed. We were delighted to take part and Colin Beattie, Òran Mór owner and dear friend to Alasdair, recorded his own reading in tribute.
We’ll be sharing our own favourite memories of Alasdair along with insights into his work here at Òran Mór, his masterwork the Celestial Ceiling mural in Òran Mór’s Auditorium.
