Literature Evening with Kathleen Jamie

**Additional seats are now available. **


Join us for an evening of live literature with poet and essayist Kathleen Jamie.

Kathleen will also be hosting a writers’ workshop at Taigh Chearsabhagh on Friday morning.

Kathleen Jamie was born in Scotland in 1962. Her poetry collections include The Overhaul, which won the 2012 Costa Poetry Prize, and The Tree House, which won the Forward Prize. Her non-fiction essays are collected in the three highly regarded books Findings, Sightlines, and Surfacing, all regarded as important contributions to the ‘new nature writing’.

Her most recent poetry collection, The Bonniest Companie, appeared in 2015 and won the Saltire Scottish Book of the Year Award.

Kathleen’s interests are in archaeology, nature and environment, travel and art. She writes mostly in English and occasionally in Scots.

Kathleen Jamie is presently Scotland’s Makar or National Poet.
