Quines:Poetry and Song by Gerda Stevenson

Friday, May 11 @ 19:30 - 21:30

Award-winning author, actor and singer Gerda Stevenson will present poetry from her new collection, QUINES: Poems in tribute to women of Scotland.

Queens, politicians, a fish-gutter, scientists, a dancer, singers, a salt seller, sportswomen (including a whole football team!) and many more – QUINES celebrates and explores the richly diverse contribution women have made to Scottish history and society from earliest times to our own.

“Clutch this book of wondrous odes to your bosom – it will gladden your heart, sadden it, but also fill you with pride. What women they were that birthed our Scottish nation and here they are, exquisitely brought to vibrant life, by that contemporary cultural quine, Gerda Stevenson.” Baroness Helena Kennedy QC

Quines is a vivid explosion of thought, description and bold opinion, clothing Scots history at last with the myriad contribution of its women. This is a wonderful, life-affirming book.” Lesley Riddoch

“…piercingly challenging and beautiful…reading it bites the heart.” Richard Holloway
