Kathleen Jamie & Don Paterson: Memories and Meltwater
Sponsored by
Event Scotland

Join us to welcome back two of the most gifted writers of their generation. Kathleen Jamie is the virtuosic poet and essayist named as Scotland’s fourth Makar last year. Working in English and Scots, Jamie’s work spans the personal and the natural world. Don Paterson returns with an eclectic new collection, The Arctic – a reference to the climate crisis and the name of a bar in a post-apocalyptic world. Today's conversation is chaired by Hannah Lavery.

Supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Stories 2022.
