Melrose Literary Society (founded 1885)
The Society offers stimulating twice-monthly evening events in a friendly atmosphere in the Ormiston Institute, Melrose when there is an opportunity to hear published authors and other speakers discuss literary topics, ranging from novels to drama, poetry, memoirs and travellers’ tales.
It attracts as speakers both academics and professional writers, and makes an important contribution to the cultural life of Melrose.
