Book Week Scotland: Publishing Scotland Non-fiction Showcase
18 November 2021
When: Available to watch from 12:30 on Thursday 18
Publishing Scotland is delighted to present a digital showcase
of fantastic authors and their non-fiction works, including some
excellent debuts. Enjoy a fascinating breadth of non-fiction - from
memoir to pop culture to nature writing - that just may show you
how to look at the world anew.
Our spotlight will shine on:
- Arusa Qureshi (404 Ink), whose Flip the Script celebrates
the women of UK hip hop,
Nina Mingya Powles (Canongate),
whose non-fiction debut Small Bodies
of Water won the inaugural Nan Shepherd Prize
for nature writing,
- Linda Gask (Sandstone Press),
Finding True North, a memoir about recovery and
- Natalie Whittle's
The 15-Minute City (Luath Press), which looks at how
cities can get better by getting smaller, and
- Great British Bake Off winner Peter Sawkins,
taking readers into the baking delights of his first ever
Bakes (Black & White Publishing).
Each author will share a reading from their work, and answer
some questions, all viewable on Youtube.
This is a digital event as part of Book
Week Scotland 2021.
This event is available to watch on YouTube until the end of 2021.
