Gray Day. 25th of February. A header image with that as text and a self-portrait of Alasdair Gray.

The first Gray Day was held in 2021 to mark the 40th anniversary of the publication of Lanark. We celebrated with a Gray Day Broadcast hosted by Neu Reekie, with the Alasdair Gray Archive and Canongate Books.
