Remembering Robert Louis Stevenson: 

Objects from the Writers’ Museum

How did Stevenson record his memories? How do we remember him now? How was he memorialised after his death? Members of the editorial team of The New Edinburgh Edition of Robert Louis Stevenson talk about some of the most important objects in the Edinburgh Writers’ Museum. Using images of items on display in the Museum, this illustrated  talk will range across Stevenson’s writing career and show how objects, as well as texts, can tell stories about a life.
