On the eve of International Women’s Day, author, actress and singer Gerda Stevenson presents poems from her new collection, Quines, which celebrates the richly diverse contribution women have made to Scottish history and society. From salt-sellers to scientists, a lively encounter in poetry and song. ‘Quines is a vivid explosion of thought, description and bold opinion.’ - Lesley Riddoch ‘What women they were that birthed our Scottish nation and here they are, exquisitely brought to vibrant life.’ – Baroness Helena Kennedy QC
