One of the many pleasures of life in Lochgilphead is browsing the shelves of the bookshop.

A nationwide campaign to celebrate bookshops – Books are my Bag – will be marked at the Argyll Book Centre in Lorne Street with a visit from not one, but two authors.

They work in seemingly very different areas of writing – but they each weave magical pictures through words.

Jess Smith comes from a travellers’ heritage and is one of the most popular traditional storytellers of her generation.

Jess will be at the bookshop on Saturday October 7 from 11am until 1pm and will be available to sign books and chat.

A different afternoon is in prospect, as children’s author Alan Windram pays a visit. A born entertainer, Alan would love to meet fans of his popular books, including the Mac and Bob series, and his latest creation – One Button Benny.

Fans young and not-so-young can meet Alan between 2pm and 3pm on Saturday October 7, and there is the promise of music and fun along the way.
