Thank you to everyone who sent requests for their library to be included in Scotland’s National Poet, Kathleen Jamie’s tour of selected libraries. The first phase of the tour will take place between October and December with visits to three libraries.
Watch the short film below where Kathleen talks about the programme which, from August, will celebrate the start of Kathleen’s third and final year as Makar.
As an advocate and regular user of libraries, Kathleen will take part in a pilot programme of events in the chosen libraries and will be joined by local writers and guests for conversations with the Makar. This first phase will inform a broader tour of libraries by Kathleen in 2024. The host library will not have to pay anything towards the event as costs will be covered.
We’ll be contacting selected libraries in the coming weeks with more information.
