Margins Book and Music Festival: Tom Leonard, Don Paterson and Billy Letford - Three Poets

Sat 25 Feb 2012 | 5pm-6pm | £7

An extraordinary bill of three generations of Scottish poets read from their work, and a must for any fans of the verse.

Tom Leonard is a legendary poet, activist and essayist. His works include Intimate Voices, which won the Scottish Book of The Year award while being banned in most libraries, and the Scottish Poetry Book of The Year 2009 for Outside The Narrative. The multi-award winning Don Paterson has produced several stunning collections including Rain and Orpheus. He has also been head of Picador Poetry for over ten years. Billy Letford might be a newcomer to poetry but his reputation continues to grow, with his hotly anticipated debut collection out on Carcanet in November.
