Tickets available for performance by children’s author

Kirkcudbright Book Week has its first sold-out performance with the news that the last place has gone for Alan McClure’s appearance in front of an audience of young readers at the town’s library during World Book Day on Thursday March 2. However, there are still plenty of places for the other free event for young readers on the same day, starting at 11am at the library and featuring Ayrshire-based children’s writer Greta Yorke.

Greta is the author of books including Witch Hitch, which won  the under 7s category in the Scottish Association of Writers’ Competition in 2010 and was published in 2015, featuring work by illustrator Maggie Bolton. This was followed by The Woo in the Wild Woods and Tartan Witch. Suitable for younger children.
