Just a quick email to let you all know that the Aye Write 2013 tickets went on sale yesterday. For those that don't know, Aye Write is a book festival run from the Mitchell Library in Glasgow. This year it will take place between Friday April 12 and Saturday April 20. There are a variety of events - the usual talks by authors, creative writing workshops, children's events, etc.
The full brochure can be found on the Aye Write website at www.ayewrite.com. Unfortunately most events aren't free, tickets are generally £8 per session and can be bought over the phone or online (incur a transaction fee) or in person at the Mitchell Library, Concert Hall Box Office or City Halls Box Office. There's also a fee for posting tickets out, but again you can pick them up and avoid this. Some free events are also ticketed, and for these tickets can only be obtained at the Mitchell Library in person.
Although I'm not planning on organising any formal Book Group events for the festival, I was thinking it was still worth publicising the festival and to offer up the services of the Book Group message board to those who want to go to events, but ideally does not want to go alone. If you're looking for a festival buddy then just post in the discussions page which session you're booked for / thinking of going to, and then you can make your own arrangements to meet up with anyone else interested. Word of caution though, don't necessarily expect to be able to buy tickets for events, particularly popular ones, at the last minute. I don't have much experience of the Aye Write festival, but I have been to the Edinburgh one and certain talks sell out pretty quickly, so I would suggest that if you haven't got tickets yet, you make this clear when you post.
Happy reading everyone!
