Pentlands Book Festival is a more than a week of events in Colinton, Currie, Balerno and Juniper Green,  organised by local folk in conjunction with  Currie and Colinton Libraries.   For the second year running we’ve got the current McIlvanney Award winner. Denise Mina, discusses  her latest award-winning book “The Long Drop”.  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 explaining how ‘talking books’ are created.  San Ghanny, as a choir, have collected and adapted stories they heard in Palestine and will be launching their new book at the Festival with songs, stories and pictures.  Plus: local authors, local history, international  stories and song, red squirrels (really!),  poetry, prizes, voices, art and something for everyone.
