Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

Jason Allen-Paisant and Samuel Tongue: Edinburgh Book Festival

Wee Red Bar
Lauriston Architecture Building
74 Lauriston Pl


Award-winning poet Jason Allen-Paisant was raised in central Jamaica and now lives in Leeds. In Thinking with Trees he explores his shifting relationship with the natural world and the way he moves through it. Poet Samuel Tongue's debut poetry collection, Sacrifice Zones, focusses on the places and people that become expendable to maintain a 'civilised' society. Join Allen-Paisant and Tongue today for a discussion of what is lost and found in nature.

Tickets are £14/£12 and can be bought here.
