An Evening with Poet & Author Brian Johnstone
Tuesday 29th May 18:00 at Dumfries
Two revelations, coming to light after the deaths of his father & mother,
prompted Brian Johnstone to turn a poet's eye on his 50s & 60s childhood, whose conventional surface concealed so much, and explore his parents' lives before and during world War II. Described by Jim Crumley in The Scots Magazine as 'A profoundly moving elegy written in a minor key; a mature, courageous, honest and extremely likeable book' johnstone's memoir 'Double Exposure' ponders why he was never trusted with the truth and vividly evokes his post-war upbringing. Sure to resonate with anyone who has an interest in family secrets and long-lost siblings, this is an event not to be missed.
