The next Wayleave event is the celebratory launch of Elizabeth Burns’ Lightkeepers on Wednesday 14th December. This will take place at The Quaker Meeting House, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster and will start at 7.30 pm. There will be readings from the book and a talk by the editors, Jane Routh and Gerrie Fellows, about the editorial process and Elizabeth’s work as a whole.
This will be followed by an Edinburgh launch at The Scottish Poetry Library on Wednesday 15th February. Elizabeth was well-known and highly regarded in Scotland, particularly in Edinburgh where she lived and wrote for a number of years before moving down to Lancaster. So it is very fitting that The Scottish Poetry Library are able to host this event.
