5 Questions with Helena Cochrane

11 August 2014

Tell us about your connection to Wigtown and the Book Festival
I live at The Old Bank Bookshop and the Children’s Marquee is in my back garden. I was Wigtown’s first bookshop baby!


Sum up your festival experience in 5 words
Terrific, brilliant, awesome, fun and exciting.


What's your favourite festival memory?
I laughed at something Philip Ardagh said at one of the children’s events and he said “Thank you for laughing I LOVE YOU!” Also when Lee Graham from NASA signed my moon book.


Who would be your dream author to appear at the Festival?
Roald Dahl- even though he is not alive.
