Aye so, you all know about Margins Festival, right? Now in its second year, it’s the brainchild of Cargo Publishing benevolent dictator Mark Buckland, a cool book and music festival in The Arches in Glasgow spread over the weekend of 24-26th February.
This year has the likes of Roddy Woomble, Aidan Moffat, William McIlvanney, Don Paterson, Louise Welsh and a performance of Alasdair Gray’s Fleck featuring the great and good of Scottish writing. Click on the banner at the top for all the events.
There’s also a cheeky wee event featuring myself and the fantastic Helen FitzGerald at 1pm on Saturday 25th Feb. It’s £4 a ticket, which you can get here.
It’s the first time ever I’m gonna be reading from Hit & Run, and considering it’s not out till two weeks after the event, it’s something of a pre-season friendly outing. Strained hamstrings and all. Although myself and Helen might not be friendly, we might be incredibly antagonistic to each other. You never know.
You’ll be able to buy copies of Hit & Run at the event before it’s out, a further insult to the laws of causality after that whole faster-than-light neutrino thing. They still haven’t sorted that out, have they? Anyway, hope to see you down there, and here’s a cool picture of a neutrino detector to finish:
