WagTongues - Dumfries and Galloway's roaming bookshop - will be conducting a daring cross-border raid in September, to take part in Carlisle's Borderlines Festival on . It will be popping up for one day only at the Carlisle Library in the Lanes from 10-4 with books for sale from both Dumfries and Galloway and Cumbrian authors. Although we won't have the space to do any readings, we will be repeating our very popular exercise in battery-farmed poetry with the Poet is IN, as well as experimenting with a new venture called Ask the Author Anything.*
There's still time for anyone writing or publishing in the region to take part. All proceeds from book sales go direct to the authors - and after Carlisle we will also be popping up at Nithraid and the Wigtown Festival, so it's a chance for you to get your books in front of arts- and literature- hungry audiences all September long.
If you have books you'd like us to sell, contact us on WagTongues@aol.com to arrange the logistics, otherwise please make sure and come along on the day.
WagTongues will also once more be raising money for Arthritis Care Scotland
*No writers are harmed in the making of these events.
