Callander 2009

Callander’s Poetry Weekend went off very successfully, despite the poor weather, and the horrendous journeys some folk had getting there. Daytime sessions on the Saturday were held in the Kirk Hall, and by the beginning of the afternoon set the hall was full. The shop was full on the Sunday too.  Sally provided haggis for lunch on the Saturday, to follow the Burns mini-conference, and after the last Sunday session everyone trooped off for a boat trip on Loch Katrine. I was impressed by the quality of the readers, by Sally and Ian’s hospitality, and by the warm and friendly atmosphere – a lovely weekend.

    I agree it was a great event. Sorry I missed your reading, which I was looking forward to, but Irene wasn't very well on Saturday night and we decided to head home for home after the "bees session", which I really enjoyed.

    I thought the Itinerant Librarian did an amazing job staying in character for 7 hours, and her stories in the evening about her world travels in the role were spell binding.

    I regret I was unable to attend and perhaps next year will see my attendance at what appears to be a full event of enlightenment.
