13th July: The Hub was bulging at the seams for the Launch of Angus Peter Campbell's new Booker Prize nominated book 'Memory and Straw' (Luath Press). Angus Peter, a Scottish award-winning poet, novelist, journalist, broadcaster and actor, was interviewed by Jennie Renton, of Main Point Books. Through this, and the audience questions, he gave us facinating insights into his new work's themes. This ranged from the bustle of New York to the Highlands of Scotland; the traditions, myths and taboos of our forebears and the modern world of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics; the nature of living and a quest for identity.
The Yes Hub was opened at their new premises on Lasswade on the 9th of June by Colin Fox of the SSP. Colin prior to opening gave a thought provoking talk on the Yes movement and the way ahead that was very much enjoyed by all.
This was followed by a fundraising Folk Music night at the Argyle Bar.
