If you're a writer or a reader, a student or a librarian, an illustrator or journalist or someone who loves books and would like to blether with others who do too, join us for our last Monday-of-the-monthly Literary Dundee Literary Lock-In.
There will be no speechifying and no readings, just an opportunity for Dundee's literary community to mingle and mix and be in the George Orwell. It's free, drop in, and we'll be there for a wee while, awaiting your chat.
Free, drop-in, from 5.30pm
