Everyone is welcome to join the Robert Louis Stevenson Club, a lively worldwide group dedicated to fostering interest in the incomparable author, and one of Edinburgh City of Literature’s partners in RLS Day. The RLS Club holds many events throughout the year from talks and lunches to full-on treks.
Founded in the 1920s by people who knew Robert Louis Stevenson and wanted to keep his memory alive, the club continues its aim to foster interest in Stevenson’s life and works by running worldwide lectures, events, talks, visits, literary competitions, writing and broadcasting. Some dedicated club members follow his trail around the world, from Edinburgh to Samoa.
The club’s collection of Robert Louis Stevenson memorabilia lies in safekeeping with the Edinburgh Writers’ Museum.
