Metaphrog at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

This year, we will be part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, "the world's largest public celebration of the written word". We'll be doing a graphic novel workshop for teens on Wednesday the 26th of August from 5pm to 6pm, in the RBS Workshop Tent on Charlotte Square.

This year again the festival has a excellent graphic novel line up, with the likes of Neil Gaiman, Mark Millar, Gary Erskine, Mio Matsumoto, Dr Mel Gibson, and more, and Ian Rankin launching his first comic too! Of course the entire two week festival is packed with exciting literary events for adults and children alike.

Yesterday morning we enjoyed attending the festival programme launch, which took place at the luxurious Signet Library in Edinburgh and featured elaborate canapes and Bloody Marys (plus tea and coffee for those of us who had just had breakfast - after all, it was only 10am!).
