Quines

anonymous - text edited from MS by Jamie Reid-Baxter

Gerda Stevenson and Jamie Reid Baxter

Spoken Word

Gerda Stevenson reads from her acclaimed poetry collection Quines, charting women’s role in Scotland’s story from neolithic times to our own (including queens, sportswomen, a fish-gutter, scientists, eg Teneu, Mother of Glasgow and Joan Eardley); Jamie Reid Baxter on 17th-century poet Elizabeth Melville, whose songs Stevenson sings. 'What women they were that birthed our Scottish nation... exquisitely brought to vibrant life, by that contemporary cultural quine, Gerda Stevenson' (Baroness Helena Kennedy QC). 'A vivid explosion of thought, description and bold opinion, clothing Scots history at last with the myriad contribution of its women... wonderful, life-affirming' (Lesley Riddoch).
