Janice Galloway: Transfiguring the Commonplace

About Janice Galloway: Transfiguring the Commonplace

Since the publication of her debut novel The Trick Is To Keep Breathing thirty years ago, Janice Galloway’s lyrical, radical voice has cut through Scottish culture, continually redefining what it means to be Scottish, an artist and a woman. She talks to Kirstin Innes about her life, work, and anything else that takes her fancy.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Janice Galloway: Transfiguring the Commonplace are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
