Book Week Scotland

Book Week Scotland is an annual celebration of books and reading which takes place every November - it started yesterday and runs until Sunday 29th. The Scottish Book Trust has plenty of details on their website, if you live in Scotland and want to see what's happening in your area.

All kinds of venues are being used, from schools and community centres to libraries, and I believe there was a big event at Stirling Castle last night with Neil Oliver and Diana Gabaldon!

I was honoured and delighted to be invited to speak at Inverclyde South West Library on Wednesday afternoon from 2-3pm. I've met the lovely librarians and they are kindly providing refreshments. Really looking forward to it and now I just have to hope a few people turn up (apart from my dearest supportive friend)!

Will let you know how it goes.

Thanks, Patsy!

Thanks, Helen - I'll give a short update at some point!

What a lovely time! I hope you enjoy your talk and that lots of people come and see you. I do love those bookshelves in your picture. Have a lovely week.

I'm sure Wednesday at the library will go well, Rosemary, have a good time.:-)

Book Week in Scotland sounds to be a wonderful set of events for the early winter.
