BOOK FESTIVAL 2021
The 2021 Cove and Kilcreggan Book Festival will hopefully take place as normal on the weekend of 27th and 28th November (Covid permitting).
As usual we have a line-up of top authors for whom tickets will be on sale very shortly.
They include You Tube’s celebrity Labradors Olive and Mabel who are bringing their “owner”, sports commentator Andrew Cotter.
There will also be Booker prizewinner Douglas Stuart (perhaps on zoom, perhaps in person) and C&K festival favourites Denise Mina and James Robertson both of whom have new titles published this Autumn.
We have a discussion on identity with ex BBC anchorman Gavin Esler and Professor Ailsa Henderson who also have new books out looking at the aspect of the debate which asks what constitutes Englishness and being British.
Gavin Francis, who is a working GP as well as an award winner writer, joins us to talk about his book Intensive Care, which chronicles his surgery work during Covid.
Kirstin Innes whose novel Scabby Queen has been a runaway success will be joined by husband Alan Bisset, the actor and playwright whose novella Lazy Susan is also just out.
Graeme Macrae Burnet is a master storyteller whose His Bloody Project was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2015 and has been translated into many languages. Graeme's latest novel, Case Study, has just been published.
Their books will be available to be purchased and signed in the Community Library.
Tickets will £7 a session or £40 for a weekend pass available online and on the day at the door.
