Join us as we talk about the influence of the Old Town on our story makers and learn about the tales which helped build the world’s first UNESCO City of Literature. After the panel discussion, we’ll be taking to the streets as poet Ken Cockburn leads a walking tour and introduces some of the characters, words and stories built into the local area.
