Scottish Poetry Library: To Absent Friends Cafe

In partnership with Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief, the Scottish Poetry Library will be creating a space in which people can come together to talk about lost loved ones through conversation and poetry. Groups will be considering how poetry can provide solace and comfort; it can be a way to remember and be remembered.

An informal café style event in which folk can gather to hear poetry readings and share their own poems, or poems written by others, around the ideas death and remembrance.

Tea and cake provided. The event is free but booking is essential. Please note that the event is restricted to 15 people only, so book sooner rather than later if interested.
