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 Iain Morrison. Ian is Enterprise Manager at The Fruitmarket Gallery, he works within a commercial framework to grow new audiences and bring them into dialogue with the Gallery's exhibitions programme through events and other activity.
