Jenny Lindsay explores a sense of place, identity and heritage in an unforgettable night of spoken word complementing the ongoing exhibition Searching Erskine.
Jenny Lindsay is a writer, poet and performer, who is also an award-winning programmer of literary events. She won a John Byrne Award for Critical Thinking in 2020 and her most recent work, This Script, has been described as “brave, complex… and always piercingly and unforgettably intelligent” by The Scotsman. She lives in Ayrshire where she is working on her debut novel and third collection of poetry.
There will be a short open mic slot as part of the poetry evening too. Bring a short poem based on a sense of place or ancestry, or simply come along to listen in and enjoy the evening.
Jenny will also be facilitating a writing workshop at Taigh Chearsabhagh on Saturday the 28th of May. For further details and booking, please visit the event page here.
Searching Erskine is an exhibition of soundscapes, print, photography, and drawing from Arun Sood, Rosalind Blake, Emile Kees, and Meg Rodger exploring connections to the history of the tidal island of Vallay.
It is currently showing in Gallery 1 at Taigh Chearsabhagh.
Taigh Chearsabhagh would like to thank Live Literature Scotland for their support.
