Robert Louis Stevenson Day 2017

10 November 2017

Robert Louis Stevenson Day is an annual date on Edinburgh's literary calendar when the life, loves and works of one of the most famous writers born in our City of Literature gets marked with a moustache-twirling and velvet-clad week full of events, in town and online, leading up to and around Stevenson's birthday on 13 November. It's a great big literary party - and you're all invited.

This year's celebrations include: the launch of a new LitLong app (which you can use to find your way around sites familiar to Robert Louis Stevenson in Edinburgh); a Stevenson walk; a book imagining Henry Jekyll's early life; a French Connection event featuring readings of poems, stories and travelogues reflecting Stevenson's love of France; and much more including a moustache to download.

See the RLS Day website for the full programme.
