Language of My Choosing by Anne Pia



Language of My Choosing by Anne  Pia

Anne Pia will be talking about her newly published memoir which centres on her life growing up in the Italian-Scots community of post-World War Two Edinburgh.

This candid memoir shares her struggle to bridge the gap between a traditional immigrant way of life and attaining her goal of becoming an independent-minded professional woman.

Through her journey beyond the expectations of family, she discovers how much relationships with other people enhance, inhibit and ultimately define self. Yet – like her relationship with her own mother – her ‘belonging’ in her Italian and Scottish heritages remains to this day unresolved and complex.

Anne is based in Edinburgh, she is a language graduate and former teacher with a recent Doctorate in Education (2008). She has been published many times in professional and academic journals, Times Educational Supplement and Scottish Educational Review; and as a government official, HM Inspector, has been responsible for expert national reports for a range of stakeholders on education in the adult learning world.

Anne will be in conversation with Jennie Renton. Jennie is well known among the literary and book world in Scotland. She is the owner of Main Point Books in Edinburgh’s West Port (which has just held a successful and interesting word festival) and she is an editor and publicist for Luath Press with whom she has worked for many years.
