About Muriel Spark: A Centenary Celebration

A celebrated novelist, playwright, poet and critic, Muriel Spark is considered one of the finest writers of the twentieth century, and the acclaim she received during her lifetime continues to grow since her death.

The Writers Museum is delighted to be a partner in the national Muriel Spark 100 programme funded by Creative Scotland and the National Library of Scotland. Find out more at murielspark100.com
