Book Week Scotland - Celebrate with StAnza at Toppings!

Saturday 26 October 2019

Book Week Scotland is an annual celebration of all things bookish. For 2019 it will take place from 18 to 24 November and we're delighted that this year StAnza are partnering Toppings Bookshop in St Andrews on Tuesday 19 November for an evening with the wonderful poet, John Glenday.

He will treat us to an evening of the poems he holds most dear in a celebration of committing poems to memory, and of carrying them through life. In the words of John’s poem, 'The Matchsafe': 'If you must carry fire, carry it in / your heart.'

Toppings Bookshop is at 7 Greyfriars Gardens, St Andrews, KY16 9HG. The event starts at 8pm and doors open at 7.40pm. You can find more information on the event, and a link to booking a seat at the following link:
