A Thoroughly Decent Read: Steve Finan
Sun 23 October 2016, 11:00 – 12:00 BST
A welcome return to the festival for Steve Finan, Production Editor of the Sunday Post, this time with a new book about ‘Scotland's favourite family newspaper’ in tow! Steve is charged with ensuring every word in the newspaper is ship shape, the grammar is graceful and the headlines irresistible. He has worked in the newspaper trade since 1979 as a compositor, reporter, football writer, columnist, sub-editor, chief sub-editor, news editor, TV critic — and all the jobs in between — from the archaic days of hot metal to the modern digital newsroom. He’s just the man to let us in on some insider secrets, including, in this crowd-sourced digital age, the enduring and comforting appeal of the subject of his book, the Pass It On tips section.
When: Sunday 23rd October, 11am (1 hour)
