Celebrating the Co-Founder of Canongate
As the co-founder of Canongate Books, Stephanie Wolfe Murray created one of the most influential and successful Scottish publishing companies of the past century. Among her extraordinary achievements, she published Alasdair Gray’s revolutionary novel Lanark, and launched the Canongate Classics imprint which brought overlooked Scottish authors back into print. Today, following Stephanie’s death in June, a host of Scotland’s leading authors pay tribute to a woman who changed the course of Scottish literature forever. Participants include Alasdair Gray, Mairi Hedderwick, Alexander McCall Smith, Tom Pow and Kim Wolfe Murray, chaired by Canongate’s own Jamie Byng.
