MORE details have been revealed of plans for a new wellbeing-themed book festival in Helensburgh.

Reading Minds, organised by the Helensburgh Community Hub, Helensburgh and Lomond Carers and the Jean’s Bothy mental health hub, will take place from March 17-19.

In addition to nature writer Jim Crumley, the programme for the weekend will include events with Helensburgh-based teacher and debut author Cailean Steed, award-winning novelist Cynthia Robertson, and Cardross resident Graham Morgan, whose 40 years of experience with schizophrenia inspired him to write a two-volume memoir and who was made an MBE for his services to mental health.
