Hero of Red Clydeside - An Evening with Author Henry Bell

November 21 | 19:30 - 22:00

Glasgow Adults Panel Event / Author Reading History, Scottish Writers

Join us for an evening with author Henry Bell, as he discusses his latest book, John Maclean: Hero of Red Clydeside, with Craig Smillie, followed by an audience Q&A. Feared by the government, adored by workers, celebrated by Lenin and Trotsky. The head of British Military Intelligence called John Maclean 'the most dangerous man in Britain'. This new biography explores the events that shaped the life of a momentous man - from the Great War and the Great Unrest, to the Rent Strike and the Russian Revolution. It examines his work as an organiser and educator, his imprisonment and hunger strike, and how he became the early hero of radical Scottish Independence.
