Doug Johnstone, one of Scotland's major writers of suspense thrillers, will be discussing and reading from his novel “Crash Land”.  James Robertson, will explain why in his latest,  “To Be Continued”, the only reliable narrator is a toad ...    Actor Crawford Logan will be reading, among other things, his favourite Burns and recreating a famous radio drama.

Plus: local authors, local history, international  stories and song, red squirrels (really!),  poetry, prizes, voices, art and something for everyone.
