About the event

Jackie Kay at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. From Poignant Autobiography to Powerful Poetry. After last year’s unforgettable memoir Red Dust Road comes a new collection of poetry from the Scottish writer. Fiere is Scots for ‘companion, friend, equal’ and it vividly describes the many paths our lives take, and how those journeys are made meaningful by our companions on the road. Written with wit and flair, this is an intriguing account of how an identity is formed and the discovery of a language that best honours it. Tickets: £10.00, £8.00.
