So I've not been updating this blog too often the past couple of months. Tsk, tsk. That's because the Prestwich Book Festival (12 May-15 June) has taken over my life once more. Yes, it's back for a second year - but this time it's bigger, badder and better. (Thanks to some funding from the Arts Council.) So I'm blogging over there from now until the end of the festival - if you'd care to follow me on that, I'd be really grateful.
Otherwise, I'll be checking back in once festivities are over.

Jenny writes: If like me you reckon that Preston is pretty much the end of the world, then you should get to its controversial bus station this Saturday (23rd March). The building hit the headlines last year when plans to demolish it galvanised a campaign to protect it which hit national media. A modernist jewel or a concrete monstrosity? Opinions are divided.
