For the latest podcast Ali spoke with Keira Brown about the inaugural Paisley Book Festival (20th-29th Feb).
As well as hearing all about the fantastic programme of events, Keira explains the festival’s theme of ‘radical voices and rebel stories’, the celebration of local hero John Byrne, the wide and varied range of what’s available, the importance of place as well as people, a small selection of the many, many highlights, and just what it takes to organise and plan such a festival.
You can peruse the full programme at your leisure, and buy tickets, at paisleybookfest.com, keep up to date with what’s going on Facebook, Twitter @BookPaisley, and Instagram @PaisleyBookFest, and also buy tickets in person from any Renfrewshire library
As well as all of the above Keira takes time to talk about The Fountain, one of the very best cultural review websites around, which is a must read for all visitors to SWH!. All in all, this is a conversation you don’t want to miss.
