During March, Edinburgh will be celebrating a new Scottish Enlightenment thanks to the superb (and always formidable) City of Literature who launch their new enLIGHTen project tonight.

Six locations running from Charlotte Square to St. Andrew Square will be projecting quotes from the works of various writers from the Scottish Enlightenment period. This is superb, but what makes it formidable is the commissioned response from six modern Scottish writers, including the divine James Robertson. If anyone wants me this evening, I shall be strolling along George Street.
