Brian Johnstone grew up in a nuclear family - or so he thought until two revelations rocked his world. He’ll discuss the background to his new memoir, Double Exposure, and the circumstances around his writing of the book. Brian will also read poems to illustrate his story. This is a touching tale of family secrets and long-lost relatives from one of Scotland’s favourite writers and poets.

Brian Johnstone was born in Edinburgh in 1950 and has lived in Fife since 1972. A well-kent figure on the Scottish poetry scene with many publications to his name, Brian is also a well-seasoned literary event organiser, a frequent collaborator with visual artists and a live performer of his poems, both as a solo reader and with various musical collaborators.
