Aye Write - Glasgow book festival Friday 5 March until Saturday 13 March 2010

Music and drama are sociable activities - and how do you share them? By communicating with other folk, whether this means playing, acting, talking about it, or writing about it. And if you're interested in the written word, you might also be interested in the Aye Write book festival, here in Glasgow. Visit the Aye Write website here. What's it all about? Here's a quote from the website:-
The Aye Write! Book Festival returns to the Mitchell Library on 5-13 March 2010 bringing another stellar line-up of authors to Glasgow. The festival, which is in its fifth year will feature local talent alongside national and international authors for a celebration of books, poetry and family events alongside community projects and another extensive schools programme. Aye Write! 2010 will include a number of themes including The Future of the Media, The Future of the Left, Globalisation and a major debate about the place of Scottish Literature in the school curriculum. The full line up of authors won’t be announced until 17th January but as a taster for what’s to come a few of the authors and writers already confirmed to take part include bestselling author Joanna Trollope, the first female Poet Laureate Glasgow born poet and playwright Carol Ann Duffy, musician and writer Edwin Collins and BBC world affairs journalist John Simpson.
