Book Week Scotland 2013

1 May 2013


Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop has announced that Scotland will host a second national celebration of reading.

Building on the success of last year's inaugural Book Week Scotland, Scottish Book Trust will deliver a week-long nationwide focus on books, reading and writing from 25 November to 1 December 2013.

The Culture Secretary joined Scottish authors Denise Mina, Mairi Hedderwick and Richard Holloway at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh to launch 'Treasures' - Scottish Book Trust's national writing project encouraging people to submit stories or poems about their own treasured possessions. Entries will be posted online and a selection will be included in a free book to be distributed across the country during Book Week Scotland 2013. Entries can be submitted for inclusion in the Treasures online collection and possible inclusion in the Treasures anthology until 31 July at 5pm. Submissions can be made online at the Scottish Book Trust website.


Full details of the Book Week Scotland 2013 programme will be announced later this year.
