Tell it Slant

Tell it Slant is delighted to host the premier launch of A Bird is Not a Stone, a groundbreaking anthology of Palestinian poetry translated into all the languages of Scotland.

The collection features poetry by 25 contemporary Palestinian poets and as many Scots writers, including the makar Liz Lochhead, Costa Award winner Kathleen Jamie and Guardian Fiction Prize winner Alasdair Gray.

The evening will include readings of poems from the collection in both the original and translations.

Liz Lochhead, Alasdair Gray, Henry King, Magi Gibson, and Ellen McAteer will all be reading.
