Event description
Spend an afternoon in the engaging company of Jackie Kay, the Scots Makar, as she discusses aspects of her work and reads selected poems.

About this Event

At this one hour event, the Scots Makar (Poet Laureate) Jackie Kay MBE will discuss aspects of her highly acclaimed work and read some of her poems. There will be an opportunity for members of the audience to ask questions and to purchase signed copies of Jackie's books. The session will take place in the beautiful surroundings of the newly refurbished Christ Church in Morningside.

Doors open 1.30 pm. Due to the nature of the event, please note that latecomers will not be admitted.

This is a benefit event for Hadeel, the Palestinian Fair Trade shop in Edinburgh. We are very grateful for Jackie's support, and to Christ Church for lending us their premises. A Hadeel stall, selling artisan crafts and food from Palestine, will be on hand.

The event will be chaired by Henry Bell, co-editor of A Bird is Not a Stone, an anthology of translated Palestinian poetry.

Christ Church is about a mile south of the west end of Princes Street, on the numbers 11, 15, 16, 23, 36 and 45 bus routes. Alight at Holy Corner bus stop opposite or in front of the church.

There should be parking spaces available in and around Napier University in the Colinton Road area, round the corner from the church. There is one disabled car parking space in the Christ Church driveway, but no other public parking there.

The church has a permanent ramp and is accessible to disabled people and wheelchair users.

Sorry - but we will not be issuing any refunds on unused tickets. You are welcome to pass on your ticket to another person.
