Book Week Scotland is a week-long celebration of books and reading that takes place every November. This year it runs from Monday 23 to Sunday 29 November 2015.

During Book Week, people of all ages and walks of life will come together in libraries, schools, community venues and workplaces to share and enjoy books and reading. They will be joined in this celebration by Scotland's authors, poets, playwrights, storytellers and illustrators to bring a packed programme of events and projects to life.

Publishing Scotland's Homegrown recipe cards for Book Week Scotland 2015

As 2015 is Scotland's Year of Food and Drink, we've decided to highlight books and reading via food memories! Look out for our Homegrown recipes in bookshops and on from 23 November.

Homegrown offers readers a bespoke collection of personal recipes shared by authors and submitted by Scottish publishers. Alongside each recipe is a short anecdote from the author, as well as related books and cookery titles. The communal experience of breaking bread and sharing stories together is celebrated in the campaign, and it aims to bring the very best of Scottish books and food into readers' homes.

The recipes are hosted on, and limited edition packs of beautifully designed recipe cards will be available through a number of independent book retailers and Scottish branches of Waterstones.

With contributions encompassing renowned food writer Sue Lawrence, literary award-winner Anne Donovan, and ground-breaking social enterprise Social Bite, Homegrown focuses on some of the most innovative and inspiring publishing in the country, whilst simultaneously allowing readers to discover a little something new.
