Sat 28 Sep

Former Wigtown Poetry Prizewinner Aileen Ballantyne launches her first full collection. Central to the book is a sequence of poems entitled “Lockerbie, Pan Am Flight 103”, which takes the form of conversations with local residents and those affected by the terror attack on Pan Am Flight 103. Her new work builds on an earlier series of poems which won the prestigious Mslexia Poetry Prize in 2015. [111]
