Paisley Museum’s Lunchtime Talk: Renfrewshire’s Frontier Poet.
This year is the 200th anniversary of the death of Alexander Wilson. Born in Paisley, Wilson immigrated to the United States as a young man. Poet, artist, scientist and social commentator, he rose to become one of the towering figures in the history and science of ornithology.
This Wednesday, June 19, local historian Alan Steel will survey the astonishing range of achievements Alexander Wilson has made and the lasting impact he has had on American identity.
The Lunchtime Talk, ‘Renfrewshire’s Frontier Poet’, will take place at Paisley Museum on June 19 at 12.30pm. Admission is free and open to all.
