WagTongues at the Arts Festival

WagTongues, Dumfries and Galloway's only itinerant bookshop, is popping up in Castle Douglas on Saturday May 24 and Sunday May 25 as part of the Arts Festival. A little bit of Castle Douglas history is being revisited, as the shop to be popped-up in is John Low's, the former newsagents at 42, King Street.

Opening from 10am to 4pm both days, WagTongues will be stocked with books written by Dumfries and Galloway authors, ranging from memoir to crime fiction to romantic novels, and from poetry to the history of the Covenanters for children to artist's books - with all genres inbetween.
Throughout both days there will be author interviews, and readings from the books on sale, giving people the opportunity to meet and mingle with the writers.
There'll also be a literary adventure taking place on the Saturday - The Poet is In - where visitors will be invited to leave their memories, reflections, dreams or nightmares in a box, and then have their prose transmuted to poetry by WagTongues writers David Mark Williams and JoAnne McKay.

WagTongues are once again raising funds for Arthritis Care in Scotland.
Full details of all events, and the programme for both days, are on the WagTongues website, here:
WagTongues would like to thank Mr Andrew Low for so generously granting the use of his premises.
