Top authors this year include J K Rowling (the third instalment of Harry Potter is due out in July), Mairi Hedderwick (for all those Katie Morag fans) and Theresa Breslin (winner of the Carnegie Medal for Whispers in the Graveyard). Writing workshops, poetry readings and story-telling are all on offer. Special reductions are available for secondary school pupils attending sessions in the adult programme.
