Poetry and the Deep Time of Trees: Walking (in the Library) with Poets - talk by Mandy Haggith
Thursday, 28 November 2013 from 13:00 to 14:00 (GMT)
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Throughout July, as part of the Walking with Poets project (http://www.walkingwithpoets.com/), run by the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in partnership with the Scottish Poetry Library, Mandy Haggith took visitors on a poetic journey through the 18 letters of the Gaelic Tree Alphabet, celebrating the native tree or shrub associated with each of the letters.
Mandy is returning to the Garden as it enters winter to talk about her experiences and how the time that she spent in the RBGE Library helped her to appreciate not only the poetry, but also the evolution, of our native trees.
PLEASE NOTE: A tour of the RBGE Library will be offered from 2pm to 3.30pm, with refreshments served in the Board Room Annexe at 20A Inverleith Row from 2pm to 2.30pm to allow time to enable those attending talks in the John Hope Gateway immediately prior to make their way across the Garden.
