Scottish PEN at 90: defending the freedom of writers and readers

1 September 2017
Scottish PEN is celebrating its 90th birthday with this engaging travelling exhibition, showcasing nine decades of Scottish literature, activism and community.  The exhibition traces the development of Scottish PEN in response to political and cultural shifts since 1927 – both in Scotland and across the globe.  Scottish PEN continues to promote the written word as a vital tool in protecting human rights, promoting freedom of expression and language; working with community groups, writers, readers and audiences across a wide range of projects and events.
The exhibition will be on display in the County Buildings, Wigtown during this year's Wigtown Book Festival from 22 September - 1 October 2017.
