An annual celebration of books and reading taking place across the country
Organised by the Scottish Book Trust and now in its 11th year, Book Week Scotland aims to encourage people of all ages and walks of life to come together and share the joy of reading.
With over 150 curated events showcasing the best of Scottish literature, from live performances, walks, talks, to workshops and panels, there is definitely something for everybody!
To mark the occasion, the Scottish Book Trust publishes a free book every year, containing true stories written by people all over Scotland which is then distributed to libraries, arts venues, bookshops and schools.
Its creation begins early in the year, through the “Your Stories” writing project, encouraging people to submit their true, personal stories, inspired by a particular theme. The 2022 theme was Scotland’s Stories. Out of hundreds of submissions, 25 stories were selected for publication.
