Phoebe Power: Aye Write! Glasgow

Friday 22 Mar 2019, 19:45 to 20:45

Mitchell Library
North St
G3 7DN


Phoebe Power and Richard Scott will read at Aye Write! Glasgow. Tickets are £6, and can be bought here.

The Glasgow Poet Laureate Jim Carruth brings two poets to Glasgow for their first appearance at the festival. 

Phoebe Power's Shrines of Upper Austria gathers numerous stories and perspectives of a landscape of lakes, folk culture and uneasy histories in central Europe. It was the winner of the 2018 Felix Dennis Prize for Best First Collection.  

In his intimate and vital debut, Soho, Richard Scott creates an uncompromising portrait of love and gay shame. But the poems celebrate joy and tenderness, too, as well as hope for healing, and above all, the finding of our truest selves.
