Helen MacKinven is the author of Talk of the Toun and Buy Buy Baby.
Both novels explore themes such as social class and identity, using
black comedy and featuring Scots dialect. Ross Sayers’ debut, Mary’s
the Name, introduces the unforgettable character of 8-year-old Mary, on
the run with her Granpa following a robbery at his work. Join these
authors as they discuss using dialect in their work and the delights and
difficulties of having a young narrator
TICKETS ARE FREE FOR BOTH EVENTS!
