First of all, we would like to wish a very happy new year to all our customers; we hope you had a restful and restorative break with family and friends over the festive period. And how better to celebrate the new year than with the announcement of a brand new venture. We are delighted to announce that as of next month we will be collaborating with internationally renowned poetry publisher (and our near-neighbours) Mariscat Press on a series of intimate, in-store live readings by some of Scotland’s finest poets.
We are starting in fine style by welcoming not one, not two, but three Makars to the shop in the form of Stewart Conn, Edinburgh’s inaugural Makar, Christine De Luca, Edinburgh’s current Makar, and Jim Carruth, the current Poet Laureate of Glasgow. All the details of this evening are on our Event page and tickets (which are free, as ever) can be booked in advance through our Eventbrite page.
We hope to update you soon about the next of these very exciting events, but in the meantime we look forward to seeing you at ‘A Mischief of Makars’ on Wednesday 4 February.
