Venue: 
Signet Library

The New Year's Conversation returns this year as Edinburgh's Hogmanay marks the 450th anniversary year, in 2010, of the birth of the Reformation in Scotland with a varied programme of events.

Author of ‘The Reformation: The Dangerous Birth of the Modern World’, Harry Reid will discuss with the former Bishop of Edinburgh and author Rev Richard Holloway what the Reformation meant then and now and whether Calvin and Knox were Scotland’s historical good guys or bad guys.

The Conversation, a rare opportunity to sit in the remarkable Upper Library on West Parliament Square, is chaired by former Edinburgh International Book Festival Director Catherine Lockerbie (pictured).

Tickets are £10 from Edinburgh's Hogmanay box office
