Come and join us for an afternoon of poetry with Douglas Dunn, long-standing friend of the artist and poet in our current exhibition and a subject of Sarah Longley’s portraiture.
Douglas Dunn has been described as ‘the most respected Scottish poet of his generation’. He is also a renowned editor and critic. The Noise of a Fly (2017) is the first collection from the poet in sixteen years, and the first since he was awarded the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry in 2013. His books – including eleven collections of poetry, two short stories collections and a translation of Racine’s Andromache – were all published to critical acclaim. His work has been extensively translated, including into the French, German, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, Slovak, Armenian and Japanese. He is the editor of The Faber Book of Twentieth-Century Scottish Poetry.
Douglas Dunn is reading along with two favourites from our ‘Landmarks’ exhibition, Alan Riach and Bashabi Fraser. Patrick Errington from St Andrews University also joins us in this first in a series of readings celebrating the wealth of international literary achievement here on our doorstep in St Andrews.
No need to book, but please arrive early to secure your place. £3. on the door.
