Friday, 26 August — Words Per Minute at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, The Spiegeltent, Charlotte Square, 9-11pm, FREE

I’m super happy that my final Edinburgh performance before I head to Australia and then back home to America will be with our friends at W.P.M.

Kirstin Innes, Kirsty Logan and Helen Sedgwick will be hosting an evening of special treats where all performers get ten minutes to impress the audience.  Expect the unexpected and some familiar faces at WPM including The Zorras, novelist, playwright and dazzling performer, Alan Bissett and American author Adam Levin and another American — me!
