In-Person Event

Book Week Scotland: Celebrating Others


Friday, November 19, 2021

6:00 pm


Friday, November 19, 2021

7:00 pm

St Vincent's Chapel, St Stephen Street

Join Bashabi Fraser and Vibha Pankaj for a special Book Week Scotland event celebrating their recent collection of evocative poetry and artwork, Patient Dignity.

Scotland Street Press is delighted to be a part of Book Week Scotland again, returning to live in-person book events this year.

Created in part as a reflection on the Covid-19 pandemic, Patient Dignity was born out of a unique collaboration between Fraser and Pankaj. They will discuss this process, as well as the celebration of diversity, culture and transnational identity which the collection represents. Bringing together poetry, art and pertinent discussion, they draw astute and often surprising comparisons between India and Scotland.

Following the discussion and answering your questions, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments and a display of original art works by Pankaj.
