Wigtown Book Festival 2019: Aileen Ballantyne - Taking Flight

  • The Print Room 9 New Road Newton Stewart, Scotland, DG8 9HN United Kingdom (map)

Former Wigtown Poetry Prizewinner Aileen Ballantyne launches her first full collection, Taking Flight. Central to the book is a sequence of poems entitled “Lockerbie, Pan Am Flight 103”, which takes the form of conversations with local residents and those affected by the terror attack on Pan Am Flight 103. Her new work builds on an earlier series of poems which won the prestigious Mslexia Poetry Prize in 2015.

Tickets are £6 and are available from the Wigtown Book Festival events page here.
