Busy Week at Wigtown Book Festival and Big Wig Festival

Jayne with Big Wig

We’re having a really busy time at this year’s annual Wigtown Book Festival which includes the Big Wig children’s festival. Jayne’s enjoying her five minutes of fame pictured here with the Big Wig mascot and the photo was featured on the BBC’s article about the festival.

Shalla took part in a translation event with our books Big Bill the Beltie Bull and Big Bill’s Beltie Bairns which attracted a huge audience of more than 70! Shalla will be reading her book Charlotte’s Woolly Yarn at the festival on Saturday and there’ll be lots of great activities to do too.

Saturday will be a busy day as Nip Nebs illustrator Ruthie Redden is holding a lovely workshop in the morning, Alasdair Hutton and William Gorman will be presenting Mustard & Pepper at noon, with Shalla’s event in the afternoon. And on Sunday Renita Boyle and Mike Abel will be officially launching Strange Visitor with a fab, fun event at 1.30pm.
