Edinburgh International Book Festival: Generations – Liz Lochhead & Henry Bell

Sunday 25th August, 11:45 – 12:45

EFI Spiegeltent

Poet, playwright, and (dare we say it) national treasure, Liz Lochhead recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of her landmark collection Memo for Spring, and released a new collection, A Handsel. 15 years ago, teenage poet Henry Bell walked into her office, and the two began a literary friendship that has seen them scribbling on each other’s poems into the night and setting the world to rights. Join them today as they discuss friendship and poetry across the generations.
