An evening with Gerda Stevenson
Gerda Stevenson at Kinross-shire Winter Festival
7.30pm at Loch Leven Community Campus (Lecture Theatre)
Gerda Stevenson, award-winning writer/actor/singer-songwriter, reads from her acclaimed collection, QUINES: Poems in tribute to women of Scotland. This remarkable book celebrates Scottish women from all walks of life - scientists, artists, a fish-gutter, politicians, sportswomen, queens, a salt-seller, singers, an engineer and many more - from Neolithic times to the 21st century. Nominated as Scots Singer of the Year for the MG Alba Trad Music Awards, Gerda will also sing songs connected to her QUINES.
"Gerda Stevenson’s fabulous Quines…a groundbreaker of a book." JACKIE KAY, THE OBSERVER
"Quines is a vivid explosion of thought, description and bold opinion…a wonderful, life-affirming book.” LESLEY RIDDOCH
“Clutch this book of wondrous odes to your bosom – it will gladden your heart, sadden it, but also fill you with pride. What women they were that birthed our Scottish nation and here they are, exquisitely brought to vibrant life, by that contemporary cultural quine, Gerda Stevenson.” BARONESS HELENA KENNEDY QC
