The Opposite of Cabbage meets The Ambulance Box
March 12, 2009
Last night the SPL was packed for the Rob A MacKenzie and Andrew Philip joint launch. Friends, family, fellow poets and colleagues made for a convivial atmosphere, helped along by fine wines and some smashing poems read by our joint poets of the month. A great heap of books were bought, and both poets were happily ensconsed in signing for a sizable part of the evening.
The assembled represented a bit of a who’s who in poetry: Colin Will, David Kinloch, James Robertson, Katy Bush-Evans, Kevin Cadwallender, Jane McKie and Jen Hadfield, who was busted carrying glasses down to the dishwasher. This great picture, by Andrew’s pal Diarmid Mogg, shows the library looking pretty by night…
