George Mackay Brown Centenary Book Group: An Orkney Tapestry


In the sixth Book Group of the George Mackay Brown Fellowship centenary series, Linden Bicket and Kirsteen McCue will discuss the new edition of An Orkney Tapestry recently published by Birlinn.

The work explores ideas and themes that emerge in his early poems and journalism – and are developed and refined in his later work. It is a celebration of place and people – and it asks troubled questions of the future.

This new edition makes the work easily available again for the first time in over 40 years. It includes drawings by the artist Sylvia Wishart, a close friend of the writer, which were commissioned for the original hardback.

This event is hosted by the GMB Fellowship and Orkney Library & Archive
