Festival Programme August 25th.

August 25, 2013


All good things must come to an end. It’s true. In a mere 9 hours the 2nd Edinburgh ebook festival will officially be OVER. Time to climb back onto the bookshelf.  So make the most of it while you can.  Brace yourself for one last, slightly shortened day of festival fun.  When it’s over it’s over. And that moment is 8pm tonight.  Are you still playing catch up?

This morning we start at 11am with a look at the man behind McStorytellers and McVoices – Brendan Gisby

At 12, High noon, we finally find out what happened to Derek the Weathersheep.  I hope. That’s if the animals live up to their promise to return him. If it was the animals who kidnapped him. There may be another story entirely. Life’s like that.

At 12.30 we remind you that it’s your last chance to get your hands on the Festival Goody Bag.  It closes at 6pm. 

And from 1pm we give you an extended chance to have your own say. Feedback for the festival will be greatly appreciated.  Those who are not bursting to comment will be happy at the extra time to ‘catch up’ on the live events they missed.  Time’s running out…

At 3pm Cally Phillips shares the final part of her festival long ‘dramatic journey.’  Applause. Curtain call. Black out. Don’t forget to download the enhanced ebook from THE GOODY BAG.

At 5pm Jack MacRoary gives us his festival round up – because his mum says he has to.

At 6pm the final author behind the narrator answers ‘the questions’. And as a nice way to come full circle, today it’s Stuart Ayris, who opened the festival, talking about his Frugality Trilogy.

And at 7pm. Drum roll. Virtual fireworks. Closing the festival we have Peter Tarnofsky, launching his short story collection Everything Turns out Just Fine.

And then, it’s OVER.  We hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves and look forward to seeing you all next August
