Poetry at Dundee Literary Festival this week

Some great poetry in prospect at this year's Literary Festival at Dundee University :-

Thursday 27th October sees Eddie Gibbons at the Bonar Hall from 12noon for 'Poem and a Piece'. Eddie's Scouse wit is by turns funny and touching. A genuinely human voice and a great poet (tickets £5)

Friday 28th October brings us Dawn Wood, again at the Bonar Hall at 10am. Dawn is a scientist and a painter, and her background in both makes for fascinating and powerful poetry. (Tickets £3)

Later on Friday, Stewart Conn, inaugural Poetry Makar of Edinburgh, reads in the midday 'Poem and a Piece' slot, bringing you his unique blend of people, places and stories in poetic form (Tickets £5)

Saturday 29th sees Chris Powici, editor of the north's only free poetry magazine Northwords Now, providing more 'Poems and a Piece' on a variety of natural and human subjects (Tickets £5)

Add to this Alexander McCall Smith, Val McDermid, Meaghan Delahunt and many more, plus the Dundee Comics Day on Sunday and you have a packed festival!

Tickets available for all events here
