Hold that Sign!

This is another of the occasional series - Writers and Other Strange Folk Who Think Books are Great! - where I take photos of the Aberdeen Reading Bus sign out on its travels. And this time, the sign made its appearance at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, in the hands of magnificently-costumed Kate O'Hearn and her equally awesome sidekicks, brother Dave O'Hearn and Derek Marshall.

And the lovely lady in the hat?  That's Janet Smyth, festival organiser extraordinaire, who made all of the school events - including Meet Leif! - possible.  And yes, she's in her pajamas.  Don't ask.

Writers and Other Strange Folk!

Hello and welcome to the first of a now-and-then series of photos, featuring writers and other strange folk posing with the Aberdeen Reading Bus sign!

First up we have Linda Strachan, author of the Hamish McHaggis books, among many others. You can visit Linda's website here.

Then there's Susan Price, winner of the Carnegie Medal and writer of more books than you could shake a stick at, should you feel like doing so.  Susan's website is here.

And then ... well, just because you're a statue/exhibition case by Eduardo Paolozzi in the National Museum of Scotland doesn't mean you don't like books!

That's all for now, but who knows who I'll grab next?  You'll just have to wait and see!
