Lapidus Scotland
Remember Tom Leonard

Sat 25 April 2020

We regret this event has been postponed. A new date will be announced shortly.


An evening celebrating Tom Leonard's writing with songs and readings from Eddie Linden, Gerry Mangan, Allan Tall, Gerry Loose, Gerrie Fellows and others.

Tom Leonard (1944 – 2018) was a Scottish poet, writer and critic. He was best known for his poems written in Glaswegian dialect, particularly his Six Glasgow Poems and The Six O'Clock News. His work frequently dealt with the relationship between language, class and culture.

Tom's son Steve has made available in both print on demand and eBook form:
-Poems - which was first published 1973 by Sonya's dad as a wedding present
-Outside the narrative - his most recent collection
-If only Bunty was here - a satirical radio screen play that was aired in 1977 and published in 1979
-Uncle Vanya - Tom's translation of Checkov's play. This had never been published before, only played in theatre
-In print on demand only: Prose - Definite Articles
