Book Week Scotland

FRA writers and illustrators were on the road last week to celebrate Book Week Scotland in events hosted by librarians and teachers throughout the country. From sessions on how to get published, to Bookbug sessions for toddlers, writing workshops and book recommendation sessions for all ages - there was a fantastic sense of how vibrant the world of books is.

One of the most telling moments was when Jan Rutherford of Polygon and Birlinn was asked what top tip she would give her audience of writers and she responded, 'Buy books from your local bookshop, borrow books from you local libraries.' It was a point worth making - we need to support the industry that we expect to support us.
