Multilingual book launch – Depositions

The Gaelic Books Council are holding a book launch in their shop (32 Mansfield Street, Glasgow G11 5QP) on Thursday 20 June to mark World Refugee Day.

The book is a new, illustrated edition of Depositions with Welsh, Gàidhlig, Gaeilge and Scots translations of Anton Floyd’s poems which featured in the original book Depositions, which came out last year, written in many languages including Irish, Greek, Egyptian and Arabic. The book gained a lot of interest when it was first published in Ireland, and there is now a version featuring Welsh. The collection holds themes of being forced from home, emigration and refugees, and Floyd is a refugee himself.

The launch will be joined by Anton Floyd and the Gaelic translator, Marcas Mac an Tuairneir, with readings in Welsh and Scots as well. You are very welcome to attend – booking is free and available on Eventbrite.

Thanks to Nerys Brown for passing on this invitation.
