About the event
Highlighting great stories and poems from past issues of the magazine as Pushing Out the Boat looks to a post-Covid future, the event is curated by long-standing former editor and Aberdeen author Martin Walsh. The afternoon is also a retirement tribute to him and Freda Hasler, multi-talented coordinator of the Boat’s crew over the years.
Be uplifted, moved and most of all entertained by this pick of the crop of work from Pushing Out the Boat. Martin will be joined by a team of weel-kent authors and poets who’ll read their own and other contributions to past magazines. Plus there’ll be some new work from Martin and guest Wayne Price with songs by Alastair Eddie from the great American songbook. And a surprise or two (think on-stage shenanigans). Entry by donation to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the Boat. Oh, and magazines on sale – of course. Doors open 14:00 for 14:30 start.
