Join us at Colaisde na Gàidhlig / The Gaelic College in their MacKenzie Hall on Saturday June 10th from 3:30-4:30pm.Cridhe ’s Anam is 6×9″ with 110 pages of Catrìona NicÌomhair Parsons’ original poems. This collection features poems in Scottish Gaelic with English translation on the facing page.

Catrìona NicÌomhair Parsons’ poems transport us from her upbringing in the Isle of Lewis to North America and New Zealand, with a focus on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia where she has made her home.

Her work contemplates emigration, the endurance of Gaelic language & culture, Christianity, aging, nature, and the changing seasons. Hymns and translations of Canadian, Nova Scotian, and Cape Breton songs round out the collection.
