Golden Hare Books is delighted to welcome three of Scotland's finest young poets to the shop to launch their latest joint collection. Published by Vagabond Voices as part of their Triptych series, Our Real Red Selves compiles three separate but thematically linked pieces by Harry Giles, Marion McCready and J. L. Williams.
Funny and achingly sad, Harry Giles’ Drone explores modern warfare and office life through a most unforgettable character. In The Birth Garden, disturbing scenes set on sinister wards and in a natural world both real and raw are captured in Marion McCready’s vivid language. Savage and hallucinatory, J. L. Williams’ The History of Fire is war poetry that stretches back and forward through time, from ancient Greeks to the Gulf. The subjects depicted by these poets are contrasting, but their imagery and intensity echo each other.
Tickets are free but you do need to book them from Golden Hare's eventbrite page.
