Book Week Scotland – launch day

Book Week Scotland 26 November – 2 December 2012

At the National Library of Scotland this morning, the first week-long project to promote reading in Scotland was launched. Government-led via Creative Scotland, it is being managed by Scottish Book Trust.

Over 400 book-related events are planned in libraries, councils, and schools taking part, including at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow, ‘The Reading Hour’ call to action on St Andrews’ Day, Book Bug sessions, and many more- like this one on Sacred Texts with James Robertson and Richard Holloway at the Scottish Poetry Library .

I’ll be posting a Scottish book-related post each day during the programme. Join in and spread the book love!
