Ten Books#4: Amy Todman

Sat 2 September 2017

My Bookcase welcome Amy Todman (curator of Political Collections at the National Library of Scotland) to speak about her encounters with ten books that have influenced her work. Amy Todman will be introduced by artist Sarah Forrest who shared the invitation with Amy as a continuation of the Ten Books chain reaction that aims to open up a wide selection of bookcases between the community of Glasgow.

Ten Books invites artists, writers and readers to share ten books that have influenced their work. Books are made available for visitors to browse them and animated through a public event specially curated by each contributor. The project initiated by My Bookcase first took place at The Project Café in central Glasgow, but now has a mobile form travelling to a variety of places. Artist Joanna Peace curated the first Ten Books event, followed by her guest, Laura Edbrook. Edbrook invited artist Sarah Forrest to run the third session of the Ten Books events and we will discover later this year who Amy Todman wishes to share her invitation with.
