Literacy - A real page turner

20th August 2010 at 01:00
A book festival to promote reading and celebrate Scotland's literary diversity will be held in Elgin next month.

The four-day event at the town's library will feature some of the country's leading writers and builds on the success of last year's event.

Among those who will feature in the programme are Aberdeenshire journalist and columnist Norman Harper; children's author and illustrator Debi Gliori; Scottish novelist Allan Massie; and local historian Bruce Bishop, who has recently launched his latest publication, Lost Moray and Nairn.

The festival will cater for all ages and tastes in reading, with sessions for pre-school youngsters, schoolchildren, families and adults. The festival runs from September 15 to 18.
