Kathleen Jamie: An Afternoon with the Makar

16 October, 2:00 pm-3:00 pm
Berwick Baptist Church

Spend an hour in the company of Scotland’s Makar, Kathleen Jamie as she reads from her work and discusses poetry, nature, culture, and our national life.  ‘Writing has remained the touchstone of my life. It’s where I do my best thinking, and where I rub up against the world.’

‘Jamie is renowned, justly, as one of our best poets of Scotland’s landscape and nature.’ The Herald

‘What a pleasure it is to have the best of Kathleen Jamie’s poems in a single, handsomely produced edition. Some think of her simply as a nature poet but that is to ignore the extent of her understanding of folklore, of history, and of the cosmic aspects of what are deemed ‘ordinary’ lives. Jamie is a poet who can summon up feelings of loss, sorrow and delight with consummate accomplishment. This book is a reminder of her astonishing talent.’ Paul Bailey, Literary Review
