Place and Peace

13:30 — 14:30
McNeillie Tent, Wigtown,

The Writers for Peace committee chaired by David Manderson of Scottish PEN invites you to a Place and Peace event at the Wigtown Books Festival on Sunday, 6 October.
Bernard and Ciara Maclaverty will read from their work on the theme of culture and borders.

Culture flows where it will: so how will it fare in a world of new borders? Father and daughter writers, whose lives have taken them between Northern Ireland and Scotland, consider place and belonging. Bernard MacLaverty’s novels include Cal, Grace Notes and Midwinter Break. Poet Ciara MacLaverty’s most recent pamphlet was Past Love in the Museum of Transport.

Introduced by David Manderson of Scottish PEN.
