Gavin Francis - Did you know ...

... that it is said to be "easier to evacuate a casualty from the International Space Station than it is to bring someone out of Hailey in winter"?


... that you can see a beautiful animation and reading of the first page of "Empire Antarctica" on Gavin's website?



To find out more, come to his event -

We were here last night and had to come back today.

We know we will have a lovely time.

It’s been absolutely brilliant, such a lot of hard work has gone into this and it shows.

Nice venue - clean, fresh. Fantastic auditorium.

Excellent. I’ll definitely be back next year. Sally Magnusson was so interesting and inspiring. The calibre of speakers was first class. Thanks so much.

What a brilliant festival! Great authors, lovely venue, & everyone I’ve spoken to is just so friendly!

Fantastic art work from the High School pupils.

Fab displays @bookmarkblair from the talented pupils of @BlairgowrieART Some future stars for the walls at PMAG ?!?

Bookmark just gets better and better.
