On Sunday 13 May at Eastwood House in Giffnock, a packed audience were treated to talks by two Glasgow bookworms who have infiltrated the London Literary Scene - Gail Sandler and Lucy Silver, Co-chairs of Jewish Book Week Festival. This was the latest in our very successful series of speaker events.

Jack Silverstone also launched the SJAC Legacy campaign as part of our ongoing efforts to secure funding for the future for the Archives Centre and its nationally significant collections.

Thanks to to all the volunteers who were responsible for putting on yet another great event and many thanks to our sponsors for the event: McClure Solicitors; Maryla and Edward Green; Lady Bette Stone; an anonymous donor..
