Luath Press and the Scottish Poetry Library are delighted to invite you to the launch of Aileen Ballantyne’s debut poetry collection Taking Flight.
A recipient of the prestigious Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award and winner of the Myselxia Poetry Competition, journalist turned poet Aileen Ballantyne will be reading from her new collection, embarking on a journey through time and place. From the 1969 Moon Landings to the Lockerbie disaster and beyond, the poems are a collection of the heartbreakingly real and personal stories of people who will be remembered long after the headlines are history.
Admission is free and all are welcome. There will be refreshments via a donation wine bar and books will be on sale, which Aileen will be happy to sign.
