We Fire The Dark 3
18th May | 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
The THIRD of three readings
Join us back at CAMPLE LINE for the third in this series of three readings by poet JoAnne MacKay, which will focus on the display and presentation of Dr Grierson’s collection and his ambitions for the museum to educate and open minds. Although the museum no longer stands, many objects remain as permanent memorial to his ‘persistent, indefatigable endeavour’.
JoAnne McKay was born in Essex and served as a police officer in the south-west of England before moving to Dumfriesshire two decades ago. She has published four poetry pamphlets and has appeared at Literary Festivals throughout the UK. Her work has been prize-winning, widely published and anthologised. She currently works at Dumfries Museum
With grateful thanks to the staff of Dumfries Museum for their support and access to Grierson’s papers
