EIBF: Great Women of Scotland with Gerda Stevenson

  • Writers' Retreat Edinburgh International Book Festival 5 Charlotte Square Gardens Edinburgh EH2 4DR (map)

Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival.

In histories writtern by men, good women have rarely been given much credit. In Scotland, there's a growing urge to redress the balance and, with her new collection Quines, Gerda Stevenson has produced a very necessary corrective. These unforgettable poems recognise the salt-sellers, the fish-gutters, scientists and politicians who have made such a key contribution to Scotland's history. Chaired by Jackie McGlone.

Part of the Scottish Ideas series of events.
