Owen Lowery: Transitions


Saturday 30 Mar 2019, 18:30 to 19:30
Location:

Mitchell Library
North Street
Glasgow
G3 7DN
Scotland

Description:

Owen Lowery will perform 'Transitions' at Aye Write! Book Festival 2019.

Combining film and live reading, this poetry event considers the theme of transition, both from the personal viewpoint of a man paralysed at the age of 18 following a sporting accident, and from a wider perspective. 

Transition is explored in nature, migration, and in terms of personal development and relationships.  Some of the filming took place on the banks of Loch Lomond, a favourite spot for Owen and his wife Jayne. 

Owen has achieved wide acclaim throughout the United Kingdom, reading his poetry from Margate to Nairn and numerous locations in between.

Tickets and more information can be found at the festival website.
