Hollie McNish & Michael Pederson Hollie leads the evening with topics that range through guilt, sex, politics, parenthood, friendship and school discos with a keen eye for absurdity and a relish for rhyme. Humane, refreshingly candid, sometimes quite rude and often very funny Her new book Slug is about the human condition: of birth and death and how we manage the possibilities in-between. Michael Pederson has added to his acclaimed collection Play with Me and Oyster with an intimate and original memoir of love, grief and male friendship - Boyfriends. Michael is undoubtedly one of Scotland’s brightest young talents. With interval. Book Now Booking Information Priority Booking for Festival Friends opens at 08.00 on Tuesday 19th April.
