Literature Walk in Words and Pictures

Many thanks to David Hicks from Edinburgh City of Literature Trust who led us on an inspiring Literature Walk on 9th Feb 2023.

Our route took in the canal basin, towpath, Fountainbridge Library (outside and inside), streets with tenements, railway path, and ended up with refreshments at the Holy Cow cafe at Edinburgh Printmakers.

Regular walkers were joined by folk who were attracted by this unique opportunity and we heard carefully chosen readings at each key point on the route.

Many thanks to Edinburgh City of Literature Trust for the walk and the teas and coffees afterwards.

Many thanks to Mo and Fountainbridge Library for the warm welcome and for showing us round.
