An Hour with Scotland's Makar
An appearance at the Book Festival by Scotland’s Makar is always a special event. 2017 will prove no different as Jackie Kay premieres her new poem commissioned specially to mark the centenary of Wilfred Owen’s time in Edinburgh. Arriving at Craiglockhart Hospital in 1917, Owen was treated for PTSD, subsequently met Siegfried Sassoon and became the poet we remember today.
