March 6th 7.15 for 7.30pm
Who better to follow the stunning success of our Burns Night Event with Gerda Stevenson than John Glenday - shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award, The Griffin International Poetry Prize, The Saltire Scottish Poetry Book of Year and winner of The Roehampton Poetry Prize. John will read from his two most recent publications: the Selected Poems, encompassing work published between the late 1980’s and 2020, and ‘The Firth’ his most recent pamphlet. He’ll share stories from his own childhood growing up on the Tay Estuary and explore wider issues of landscape and heritage and belonging. Should be a great night!
‘a poet who constantly blindsides and move us, whose direct and pure lyric brings us, again and again, face-to-face with the mystery of our being here’
A haunting music full of subtlety of thought and religious echoes’ The Guardian
We look forward to seeing you on March 6th for another brilliant night at The Bakehouse. Booking is essential, as places are limited.
