Hats off to the organisers of the Portobello Book Festival. Once more they’ve done themselves proud.
Among the many authors appearing this year are Jenni Fagan (The Panopticon), Catriona McPherson (the Dandy Gilver series) Angela Jackson (The Emergence of Judy Taylor), Vicki Jarrett (Nothing is heavy), Meaghan Delahunt (To the island) and Isla Dewar (Women Talking Dirty).
There’s also performance poetry, writers workshops, an introduction to book design, and sessions on knitting, Walter Scott, John Muir and understanding dementia.
Sounds good doesn’t it? View the complete programme then get yourself down to Portobello Library to collect your free tickets.
The festival runs from 3rd – 5th October and is dedicated to the memory of Heather Neal: colleague, reader and friend of Portobello Book Festival.
