Kathleen Jamie – Cairn

Tickets £11/£9











For the past five years poet and author Kathleen Jamie has increasingly turned her attention to a new form of writing: micro-essays, prose poems, notes and fragments. Placed together, like the stones of a wayside cairn, they mark a changing physical and mental landscape – suffused with wisdom and beauty.

This event was originally programmed to include Lavinia Greenlaw however unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, it will now be a solo event with Kathleen Jamie as Lavinia is sadly unable to join us.


Chaired by Claire Malcolm



Praise for Kathleen Jamie: ‘Kathleen Jamie is a supreme listener … clear, subtle, respectful, and so unquenchably curious that it makes the world anew’  Richard Mabey
