Polly-Clark-cutout-wHELENSBURGH author Polly Clark took part in the West Dunbartonshire Libraries Booked! Festival of Words this month.

Polly, whose debut novel 'Larchfield' was inspired by W.H.Auden’s time spent teaching at Larchfield, talked about the book on Wednesday May 10 at Alexandria Library.

The story of how the Toronto-born literature programme producer for Cove Park, the International Artist Residency Centre on the Rosneath Peninsula, came to write the book is told here.

The Festival runs from May 8-20 at various venues in West Dunbartonshire.

Another Helensburgh resident who took part was former Dumbarton, Celtic, Borussia Dortmund and Scotland footballer Murdo MacLeod, who is now a football pundit.

Murdo and ex-Rangers player Derek Johnstone was in a panel event chaired by journalist Hugh Keevins at Faifley Library, Clydebank, on Thursday May 11.
