In these days of austerity we're all looking for a bargain so what's better than a chance to see four writers together at once. Three Wigtownshire authors, with very different styles and approaches to writing, will be reading from their work at a series of Autumn events kicking off with an evening in Newton Stewart on Friday 20th September.

Kriss Nichol, poet and author of 'In Desolate Corners Shadows Crouch', will be talking about how her experiences as a volunteer in Nepal have helped to shape her new thriller 'Monsoons and Marigolds' which focuses on a woman who is taken hostage in the country. Jayne Baldwin is a non fiction writer who will be talking about the Glenkens Murder and the last public hanging of a woman in Scotland, the subject of her new book 'Mary Timney, the Road to the Gallows'.
To lighten the mood, Patricia Comb will the celebrating the release of her successful e book in paperback. 'Cafe Paradise' is an hilarious romantic comedy set in York. And last, but not least, Renita Boyle, storyteller and author of children's books, will be singing songs and entertaining in her own inimitable way.
