Next season promises a comprehensive programme that will satisfy all appetites from poetry, prose and script writing. There will be a number of guest speakers including BBC Newsnight’s Kirsty Wark talking about her new novel set on Arran entitled ‘The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle’. The new season kicks off on Wednesday 3rd September 2004 from 7.15pm to 9.30pm at the Carlton Hotel, Prestwick,with meetings each Wednesday thereafter.
