    Tuck into an evening of terrific tales and delicious food as the Edinburgh International Book Festival's Citizen participants share stories of life in Musselburgh and writers explore what community means today.

    Savour a sumptuous three course meal provided by the Scran Academy (included with your ticket), and hear brilliant new writing inspired by the town from local people who have taken part in Citizen's creative conversations over the past 18 months. They're joined on-stage by The Fair Botanists author Sara Sheridan, and poets JL Williams and Andres Ordorica, who share their own powerful writing and discuss their views on community, identity and home.

    Part of Citizen Winter Warmer and Book Week Scotland, presented by the Edinburgh International Book Festival and The Brunton Theatre. Citizen is supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery and funded through the PLACE Programme, a partnership between the Scottish Government - through Creative Scotland - the City of Edinburgh Council and the Edinburgh Festivals.
