Wigtown Book Festival Company
The Stena Line Wigtown Book Festival
Friday 25th September – Sun 4th October 2009
The Stena Line Wigtown Book Festival is a 10-day celebration of literature and the arts in Scotland’s National Book Town. This year's festival promises to be the most exciting yet with authors appearing including Irma Kurtz, John Boyne, Nick Nairn, Giles Foden, Iain Banks, Kenny Logan, Liz Lochhead, Louis de Bernieres, David Owen, Alan Grant, Allan Little, Brian Keenan, Charlie Allan, Christopher Brookmyre, Roddy Doyle and Allan Massie as well as music, film, theatre, street entertainment, exhibitions and a continental market.
There is also a full children's programme including events from Babette Cole, Marcus Sedgwick, Alan Durant, John Fardell, Philip Ardagh and a special celebration of the Gruffalo’s tenth birthday with Julia Donaldson.
As part of Scotland's Homecoming 2009 celebrations, we'll also be hosting a unique festival-within-a-festival celebrating the connections between whisky and writing. With music, tastings and some of the world's top whisky experts - including Charlie MacLean, Gavin Smith, Ian Buxton and Robin Laing and Dave Broom - it will appeal to anyone who has ever curled up with a book and a dram.
