Neil Gunn Trust: Jackie Kay Lecture – Friday 14th September 2018

In 2016 Jackie Kay became the 3rd Scottish Makar. Accepting the appointment she said, “I hope to open up the conversations, the blethers, the arguments and celebrations that Scotland has with itself and with the rest of the world, using the voice of Poetry in its fine Scottish delivery.”

Jackie is going to read a selection of her own poems and talk about several Scottish writers including Neil Gunn, Nan Shepherd and others of her choosing. Jackie’s lecture is tied into the launch of the Neil Gunn 2018/2019 competition – more information will be shared with schools later this month.

Tickets are £7 for adults and £1 for children. Get tickets on:
