Invisible People: Fairies & Folklore in Art and Writing

  • Golden Hare Books 68 St Stephen Street Edinburgh United Kingdom (map)

with authors Marina Warner and Kirsty Logan

This event is sure to be pure magic. Marina Warner (Forms of Enchantment and Once Upon a Time: a Short History of Fairy Tale) and Kirsty Logan (The Gloaming and The Rental Heart and Other Fairytales) have both dedicated their writing careers to exploring fairytale and myth in their fiction and nonfiction.

What happens when these two brilliant writers about an intrinsic part of our culture come together to talk about the phenomenon of fairies as explored in literature, art and anthropology? You’ll have to come along and find out.

Chaired by writer Heather Parry.
