Join us for  readings and music from a wind trio as we launch Stewart Conn latest pamphlet. This is Conn’s fourth pamphlet with Mariscat and it delves, with characteristic style, tenderness and humour, into the poet’s central concerns: the natural world, family, love, and the ephemeral nature of all life. Conn was Edinburgh’s inaugural Makar (or Poet Laureate). His many books include The Touch of Time: Selected Poems (Bloodaxe) and a recent anthology of Scottish island poems, Other Worlds (Polygon).

Copies of Underwood will be available to buy on the night but if you are unable to make it, you can order the book from www.mariscatpress.com.
