Join local poet Rita Bradd as she takes us on a journey through her debut poetry collection, Salt and Soil. Born in Edinburgh, and a resident of East Lothian since early childhood, Rita has been widely published in poetry anthologies since 2007. Salt & Soil is her debut poetry booklet, and includes her renowned poem ‘The Herrin Trail’, which tells the story of fisherwomen who walked from Dunbar to Lauder over the Lammermuir Hills, with fish to sell or barter. Other poems in the booklet are mainly set in and around East Lothian and Edinburgh.

An early evening poetry reading from an exquisite poet!
