Description

The award-winning poet, novelist and playwright, Jackie Kay, appears at Southwell Library.

She was awarded an MBE in 2006 and was named Scots Makar—the National Poet for Scotland—in March 2016.

…these poems flicker fascinatingly between oppositions… exploring authenticity, allegiance, origins and memory through multiple masks’ Ruth Padel, The Independent

“Warm, tough, painful and often very funny poems’ – Fleur Adcock, Sunday Times.
