PART OF THE Homegrown ISSUE
An annual week-long celebration of books and reading
During Book Week Scotland, people of all ages and walks of life come together in libraries, schools, community venues and workplaces to share and enjoy books and reading. They are joined in this celebration by Scotland’s authors, poets, playwrights, storytellers and illustrators to bring a packed programme of events and projects to life.
Book Week Scotland is run by the The Scottish Book Trust, and a full programme of events can be found on their website.
To mark the week at Books from Scotland, we’re celebrating the rich tradition of publishing, authorship and reading which has grown up from these shores. We’ve brought this tradition together with the national Year of Food and Drink, to give you HOMEGROWN, a collection of stories and recipes from Scottish authors and publishers.
Book Week Scotland 2015 runs from Monday 23 – Sunday 29 November.
