Gerda Stevenson: A Tribute to the Women of Scotland

16b9b043-5f12-46cb-8f0c-49d3f8c0641b

Luath Press and the Scottish Poetry Library present the launch of Quines: Poems in Tribute to Women of Scotland by Gerda Stevenson, on 8 March 2018.

 The poetry collection charts the part played by some remarkable women of Scotland in our nation’s history and culture.

Stevenson’s Quines represents all kinds of professions and social classes – among them singers, a fish-gutter, politicians, a salt-seller, scientists and many more –  spanning from early Scotland to 21st century. The poems celebrate these women’s achievements and contributions to Scottish history and society.

Written in Scots and English, the collection celebrates well-known women of Scotland, remembers those who were forgotten and introduces brilliant women who are completely unknown.

Event details: 8 March 2018, Scottish Poetry Library, 6.30pm.

Free entry. To book, visit Eventbrite.
