On Thursday, to kick off the 2015 Edinburgh International Book Festival, the PUSH 2 book launch takes place at the famous Word Power Bookshop. As with all previous launches, it promises to be a lively affair. There will be readings from Kevin Williamson, Joseph Ridgwell, Dean Lilleyman, Craig Gibson, Dickson Telfer, Michael Pederson and J. Currie. And then it will be all about the raffe. The venue is yet to be confirmed. Basically, with so many of my raffles almost getting closed down once the old bill got wind, we are keeping this one under cover until the last minue. So you will need to be at Word Power from 6.30pm to find out where we will be all heading, where the raffle will be drawn. Rave culture, raffle culture - the establishment hate it when folk get together and just want to have a good time. And a good time will be had. PUSH 2 is a great book and I can promise you the raffle will not let you down. Here are some of the prizes up for grabs.
And to conclude the night - the PUSH CUP. The last 4 tickets drawn not only win you a Subbuteo team, but also entry into the cup semi finals. The semi final draw, made recently, is as follows: Hibs v West Ham, Scotland v Forfar Athletic.
