Nairn Book & Arts Festival 09

The Nairn festival crams so much into the wee town over a week that this year ‘Book Week’ is going to last eight days.

Expect the usual imaginative blend of entertainment and bite, local and national, famous and unknown. On the writing front look out for Liz Lochhead, James Kelman, William Dalrymple and Erica James as well as the Highland’s own renaissance man James Ross and a positive rash of local writers.

There’s a creative writing workshop from Cynthia Rogerson, director of the Arvon Foundation’s Moniack Mhor. Book early!

Dates: 5th – 13th June 09
