To celebrate the publication of Paolozzi at Large in Edinburgh, join us for an evening of poetry, jazz and talks relating to Eduardo Paolozzi and his sculptures in Edinburgh. This new book published by Luath Press is edited by Christine De Luca and Dr Carlo Pirozzi.

The evening will begin with a drinks reception when you can sample Paolozzi beer courtesy of the Edinburgh Beer Factory, followed by poetry readings by former Edinburgh Makar Christine De Luca, jazz by Martin Kershaw and a discussion of Paolozzi's sculptures. Ray Bird's short film 'Manuscript of Creation' - which features Paolozzi's iconic 'Manuscript of Monte Cassino' - will also be screened.

After this, you will have an opportunity to visit our shop where you can receive a fantastic 15%* off purchases on the evening, and for those customers who purchase a signed copy of the Paolozzi at Large in Edinburgh book, there will be goody bags** on offer.

The event is supported by the Italian Cultural Institute of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Beer Factory.
