We are very delighted to welcome Jack McLean as our guest speaker to Weegie Wednesday on Wednesday 21st February,
Jack McLean, also known as The Urban Voltaire, was one of the most original columnists in the Scottish press, writing his uniquely opinionated columns for the Scotsman and The Glasgow Herald for over 20 years.
An author of several books, a broadcaster, a lover of art and sometime blues musician, Jack will join us at the CCA, to talk about what it takes to produce a regular column for a national newspaper for so many years.
The talk will last between 10 and 12 minutes.
