With two actors, playwright James Ley dramatically tells the story of Edinburgh's radical LGBT bookshops, which beautifully takes us through the history and the lives of the people involved. James Ley and the cast, including novelist GARTH GREENWELL, follow with a discussion on the past, present and future of LGBT writing and how books really do change lives.
