The dates have been announced for Kirkcudbright Book Week 2023, which is making a welcome return after twice being cancelled due to the covid outbreak – and now the organisers are seeking sponsors.
The week, which will take place between Monday February 27 and Saturday March 4, 2023, is designed to celebrate the developing literary scene in Kirkcudbright
and the wider Dumfries and Galloway area and will feature both professional and aspiring authors.
Events will include poetry and prose performances as well as film and music and the programme will be unveiled later in the year.
Kirkcudbright Book Week has been organised by Kirkcudbright Book Week Society, which is supported by a number of local organisations and venues, and which is now seeking sponsors for the event.
Book Week Co-ordinator, the crime novelist John Dean, said: “Having been forced by coronavirus to cancel the event for two years in a row, we are looking forward to its return in 2023.
“As with all events like Book Week, funding is a constant challenge and we have to raise every penny ourselves.
“We already have several sponsors who are either supporting individual events or the week generally but more would be greatly appreciated and it’s an excellent opportunity to be associated with something really exciting.”
