Doric Evening, Upstairs at the Bothy

Bill Thom and Linda Smith, two of the north-east’s finest Doric writers, will appear on Saturday 7th June (18:30) for a reading and book signing.

Banff poet Bill Thom will read from his recently published chapbook “The Quait Chiel”, a riotously entertaining ballad following the misadventures of twa aul chiels as they try to head home from the pub one night. 

Huntly-based Linda Smith, winner of the 2011 Toulmin Prize for best Doric short story, will also read a selection of her latest work. Published regularly in the Leopard magazine, Linda has most recently appeared in "Weaving Words", an anthology of poetry and prose by the Huntly Writers.
