The launch for this year’s festival will provide a taste of what’s in store over the ten days of Paisley Book Festival. Poet, playwright and performer Hannah Lavery, whose recent works The Drift and Lament for Sheku Boyah both call for accountability from a society that remains determined to look the other way. Writer Laura Waddell, whose recent book, Exit, is a wide-ranging exploration of exit signs and what might be on the other side. Finally, Renfrewshire resident Alan Bissett with his new novella Lazy Suzan.
