Gerrie Fellows reads from Uncommon Place, a new collection of poems from Shearsman, in which she explores the relationship of the walker with the shifting nature of the place through which she walks. Rooted in Scotland’s mountains and open spaces, its fenced enclosures and mined ground, Uncommon Place develops from earlier books what one writer has called ‘the most intelligent debate between technology and nature in poetry that I know.’ Gerrie’s five collections include The Body in Space and Window for a Small Blue Child. She lives in Glasgow and mentored a number of the Clydebuilt poets.
