I ❤ Wigtown

It’s not just our audiences who are missing Wigtown Book Festival this year - our authors are missing our audiences too! In this fun-filled family hour, three of Wigtown’s most devoted and adored children’s authors take on the 60-minute book challenge. That’s right! Taking up their roles as author (Vivian French), illustrator (Shoo Rayner) and storyteller (Renita Boyle) they battle towards creating, illustrating and telling a story based on Wigtown in just one hour. But they need your help - tune in to help shape the story and make your mark on Big Wig history.
