Dundee Literary Festival - Writing Lives

Thu 19 October

Two writers seek to understand the impact of their childhoods through two candid, vivid memoirs. Rocked by revelations coming to light twenty years apart following the deaths of his father and mother, Brian Johnstone turns a poet’s eye on his 1950s childhood and his parents’ lives before and during World War II in his first work of nonfiction,
Double Exposure. Anne Pia’s search for belonging prompted her to revisit the post-war Italian-Scots community in Edinburgh’s Bruntsfield of her upbringing, her relationships with her family, and to explore the gap between a traditional immigrant way of life and her own professional ambitions and aspirations.

When: Thursday 19th October, 3.45pm
