Dumfries launch: The Conversation of Sheep by Hugh McMillan

  • The Stove 100 High Street Dumfries DG1 2BJ (map)

Hugh McMillan launches his new poetry collection The Conversation of Sheep at The Stove, Dumfries.

The Conversation of Sheep is a book by, for and about sheep. For those who live in the country sheep are strange punctuation marks in life, chewing insouciantly in the background while folk are born, work, live and die below the great and sundering sky. Some of these poems feature sheep as bucolic extras in the film of life, others delve deep into the secret nature and personalities of sheep themselves. Hugh McMillan is an award winning poet and Michael Robertson, whose photgraphs also populate this book, is a shepherd who lives in the same village.

Entry is free and all are welcome, no booking required.
