Tricia's Book 

Tricia McCallum - Nothing Gold Can Stay: A Mother and Father Remembered



Invites you to an evening
With the poet
Thursday 28th February at 6 pm
at the Haynes Library

"It is not what the poet feels when he writes the poem that matters, but what the reader feels when reading it."


Come and join Tricia as she reads a selection of her work, some published, some brand new.

Join her afterwards in a group discussion where she welcomes your personal thoughts on poetry.

Tricia McCallum is a Glasgow born Canadian. She writes about the everyday in her poems, the commonplace, the people and places we all know. At its best, Tricia feels poetry can be a shared language like no other. “Maybe you'll see something of yourself in my words, glimpse part of your life, or at least shades of it.  And I think we all take comfort in that.”
Everyone is welcome.
