Blood Salt Spring: An Evening with Hannah Lavery


We’re beyond thrilled to invite you to Lighthouse Bookshop for an intimate celebration 0f this stunning new collection from one of Scotland’s most daring, creative souls. 

In a moment that is demanding you to constantly choose your side, how do you find your humanity, your own voice, when you are being pushed to find safety in numbers? Blood Salt Spring is a meditation on where we are – exploring ideas of nation, race and belonging.

Much of the collection was written in lockdown and speaks to that moment, the isolation and the traumas of 2020 but it also looks to find some meaning and makes an attempt to heal the pain and vulnerabilities that were picked and cut open again in the recent cultural shifts and political wars.

Lavery has brought all her talents to healing salted wounds, and moving out of winter and into spring – into hope.

‘hers is a voice which speaks to and for the conflicted conscience of Scotland around issues of identity, race, justice and belonging with a power and authenticity like perhaps no other’ – The Scotsman
