August events – Edinburgh Festival appearances, Doune the Rabbit Hole, and special night in Glasgow in aid of the Alliance for Middle East Peace

Posted: August 13, 2012 in Uncategorized

Hello from Serbia, where I’m currently Writer in Residence in a gorgeous wee village called Trsic in the west of the country, close to the Bosnian border. I’ll be returning soon and am appearing at a number of different events at the Edinburgh Festival in the second half of August, also one or two others. Some of these have been unconfirmed until recently so I thought I’d post about them all at the same time. Along with my own events relating to Bring Me the Head of Ryan Giggs and the dazzling international Elsewhere project, I will be chairing some fine writers, and recommend their events too. All at Charlotte Square Gardens, Edinburgh, unless stated otherwise. So:
