An Evening with Ewan Morrison
Outspoken leading light of Scotland’s literary culture, Ewan Morrison returns to the SWC to talk about his latest books and screenplays (as well as the recent experience of adapting his novel, Swung, into a motion picture). He will also air his favourite controversies, such as the new trends and survival strategies he sees developing in the literature world (with the bottom falling out of the market).
Ewan is Glenfiddich Scottish Writer of the year 2012/13, winner of the Scottish Book of the Year (SMIT) Fiction Prize 2013, and author of six books. His novel, Swung, was adapted to a feature film starring Pedro Almodovar’s leading lady, Elena Anaya, in December 2013. His last two prize winning books (Tales from the Mall and Close Your Eyes) have been highly acclaimed by internationally renowned writers such as Douglas Coupland and James Frey. He is currently completing his seventh book (Day One) and its screenplay, concurrently.
