Join us for Everyday Queer Adventures, an evening discussing the adventures of everyday queer life at Lavender Menace Queer Book Archive.

Alice Tarbuck is an academic, writer and literature professional based in Edinburgh. In her debut work, A Spell in the Wild, Alice describes what she practises as ‘intersectional, accessible’ witchcraft – it’s about the magic you can find in an overgrown snicket or a sixth floor stairwell; whatever your gender; whether you’re able to climb a mountain or can’t leave the house. Month by month, Alice walks us through everyday magic for extraordinary times.

Kirsty Logan’s latest book is Now She is Witch (Harvill Secker, 2023), a queer medieval witch revenge quest. Forthcoming is The Unfamiliar (Virago, 2023), a memoir of queer pregnancy and parenthood. She is also the author of two previous novels, three story collections, two chapbooks, a 10-hour audio play for Audible, and several collaborative projects with musicians and visual artists. Her books have won the Lambda, Polari, Saboteur, Scott and Gavin Wallace awards. Her work has been optioned for TV, adapted for stage, recorded for radio and podcasts, exhibited in galleries and distributed from a vintage Wurlitzer cigarette machine.

This event is part of Book Week Scotland 2023: Adventures
