I'm engaging in a few events to try and spread a bit of awareness of my project. As you know, I've been commissioned by the Wigtown Book Festival to write a sequel to the funny and notorious 'Gallovidian Encyclopaedia' written by John McTaggart in 1824, a hilarious and partly slanderous work which was withdrawn from publication as a result of the furore it caused at the time.
Im going to hold a regular series of events across the region introducing people to the work of McTaggart and revealing some of my own eccentric vision of the region today. I'll be appearing in regional libraries from the middle of February but in the meantime you can catch me first on Saturday 25th January upstairs in the Coach and Horses at 3.00pm as part of the Big Burns Supper Festival. Entry is £5.
