Gerda Stevenson (2018 Event)

In histories written by men, good women have rarely been given much credit. In Scotland, there’s a growing urge to redress the balance and, with her new collection Quines, Gerda Stevenson has produced a very necessary corrective. These unforgettable poems recognise the salt sellers, the fish-gutters, scientists and politicians who have made such a key contribution to Scotland’s history. In this event, recorded live at the 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival, she discusses the collection with Jackie McGlone.
