Birthday Rainbow Rainbow

Thank you for all the beautiful birthday wishes, it means a lot! I have taken this whole week off to enjoy relaxing and fun birthday adventures (all birthday celebrations should last at least a week).

Here are some in case you want to join me:

Reading with the brilliant Nadine Aisha Jassat, Tom Pow and – warming us up, last year’s winner, Katie Ailes… in the Book Week Scotland Rebel Slam at the Scottish Storytelling Centre tonight (Tuesday 20 November):

Attending the Women on the Road Open Book Workshop with the splendid Marjorie Lotfi Gill tomorrow (Wednesday 21 November):

Reading with the marvellous 12 and Rhona Warwick Paterson in Women on the Road at the Fruitmarket (Wednesday 21 November):

Might be able to catch this talk by the magnificent Robyn Marsack on Edmund Blunden and WW1 Poetry and recommend (Thursday 22 November):

Dancing at the Book Week Scotland Feminist Disco (Friday 23 November):

Listening at the launch of the stupendous Iain Morrison’s I’m a Pretty Circler at the Fruitmarket (Saturday 24 November):

Hope to see you somewhere along the way.

PS Just looked out my window and look what was shining through the rain and hail and wind… double rainbow! Double rainbow!
