    MTOT strapline

    Mother Tongue Other Tongue Glasgow 2014-15

    On Saturday 7 March 2015 our MTOT stars were invited to a special celebration event in the Burns room of the Mitchell Library. This event was one of many taking place in the library as part of the Wee Write children’s book festival.

    As the event drew to a close, our stars and guests were invited to leave comments on sticky leaves around our poetrees.

    Many expressed great enjoyment at what had been a fantastic celebration.
