Jackie Kay

Strength in Difference

New collection Bantam, Jackie Kay’s first as Scotland’s Makar, is a shimmering reflection on the gallus spirit that animates ordinary lives. Kay’s poems address her mother, her father, and his father in turn. Alongside them are vivid childhood memories of Ardtornish, Avielochan, Rannoch Moor; and threaded through everything, a paean to the vibrant diversity of the Scottish nation. An hour with our national bard is always a pleasure. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
