Event description

Description

Blackwell's Bookshop and Scotland Street Press are excited to invite you to celebrate the launch of MACSONNETRIES by Petra Reid.

Inspired by Shakespeare's 154 sonnets, MACSONNETRIES reflects on the small things in life - love, death and marriage - with wit and a kick.

Poet Petra Reid will perform some of the sonnets with the help of flautist Graham Dickson.

About the Poet

Brought up in post-industrial Lanarkshire, Petra Reid did Law at Edinburgh University and worked as a solicitor in general practice, and more recently as a welfare rights adviser. She studied Fine Art while raising a family and developed her interest in poetry through Dada. She does site specific performances at one-off events.
