Kim has been volunteering at the festival, and helping out with some of the practicalities: including serving up a delicious lunch of homemade cottage pie. She’s currently reading The Shipping News by Annie Proulx. “It was recommended by a friend and unlike me, I’ve read it on a Kindle. Normally I’m a fan of the old-fashioned book! I’m loving the unusual style of her writing; beautiful evocative words in short-clipped sentences. A bit like the shipping forecast – it gives it such an immediacy.
“I’m only half-way through and I’ve got lots of questions about the plot and waiting for it to unfold. I’m looking forward to seeing how the story pans out!”
