Do not miss the chance to take a literary journey through the city of Edinburgh and read New Year's Resurrection, a new short story by Val McDermid, told through projections onto buildings and landmarks.
In the first UNESCO City of Literature, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay and Edinburgh International Book Festival have commissioned Val to write a short story that is being told through projections onto buildings and landmarks around Edinburgh until 25 January 2018. Val has collaborated with dramaturg, Philip Howard, Edinburgh based projection company Double Take Projections and some of Scotland’s best soundscape artists to bring the story to life.
Explore the city as you read, moving from location to location to discover the next part of the story. Each building or landmark is its own chapter, so you can enjoy the whole story in one evening or over a period of time. The accompanying free app translates the story into seven different languages including French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Simplified Chinese and Spanish and an audio description will be available for visually impaired visitors.
