Ann MacKinnon continues with the launch of her first collection at this reading in Edinburgh tomorrow. And tomorrow night she is joined by Stewart Sanderson. p&g has had a sneak preview of Ann's Nae Flooers at her reading at Callander Poetry Festival - it's fabulous, nuanced and strong in its language yet shot through with powerful and ambivalent emotion. We suggest you buy it immediately. But go along and hear Ann too because she is a fine reader.
Berries faw at ma feet.
skinklin like jewels.
I mind the frauchtiness
on ma tongue..
(extract Ablaw the Elder Ann MacKinnon)
The event is free and takes places at 7pm at the Golden Hare bookshop at 68 St. Stephen Street, EH3 5AQ. So you can also enjoy other books while you are waiting for things to get started.
