Come along and join me for an hour’s talk with Kirsty on-stage and to see a special screening of the first Kick-Ass movie in a vintage cinema afterwards where I’ll be providing an introduction…
I’ve never seen Kick-Ass on the big screen, that looks like a great time! A bit of a cummute for me unfortunately.
Already checking out local pubs online!
I see the words “Borders Book Festival” and miss Borders all over again. Clearly referring to something else, alas.
Hahaha. I thought the same thing at first.
There are borders all over the globe (and Borders books still exist in Singapore and Malaysia).
It was the capitalization. It’s also an industry both @YoungDuke and I worked in making our first association the brand. So it’s likely little to do with our nationality.
In Scotland many towns and villages close to England are known collectively as the Borders region. They have been known that way for several centuries before someone set up a book selling chain. All capitalised.
That’s interesting. I knew Borders continues elsewhere. Even though it was run terribly by the end, I still miss working at a bookstore.
It was my first thought too - the combination of Borders with books definitely has that connotation for me.
Now with added Quitely!
