Join Alan Bissett and Helen Mackinven, two of Falkirk’s finest bairns for an evening of book chat and banter.
Alan has just finished performing his What the F**kirk? tour from earlier this year, as well as an exclusive performance of his ‘one-woman show’ The Moira Monologues for the Funny in Falkirk comedy festival. As well as a playwright, Alan is the author of several novels including Boyracers, The Incredible Adam Spark and Pack Men. He is also the editor of recent anthology of Falkirk writing, Alight Here, which celebrates the work of local professional and amateur writers from the Falkirk area. Helen Mackinvenn has had several short stories published including one in the Alight Here anthology. Her debut novel Talk of the Toun is published in October 2015, and is an uplifting black comedy of love, family life and friendship; a bitter-sweet coming-of-age tale is set in the summer of 1985 in working class Scotland.
