Friday 16th June
BORDERS BOOK FESTIVAL
with Annalena McAfee

Polly Clark and Annalena McAfee, two superb writers with novels that are real favourites with the book festival team, join us to talk about their gripping new books Larchfield and Hame. Both novels are set in coastal Scotland, where their protagonists seek to carve out new lives. These atmospheric stories of two modernday women interweave with those of two complex poets who once lived in their adopted homes. Yes – W.H Auden really did live in Helensburgh whereas the irascible Grigor McWatt of Fascary is pure fiction.
