Book Week Scotland 2018

Our Library Service is hosting a full programme of events to celebrate Book Week Scotland (BWS) – 19-25 November 2018.

The annual event is a national celebration of books and reading that brings hundreds of events to a variety of venues across the country.

The 2018 events programme is packed with tales and talks, from the personal to the historic and political, with something for all ages to enjoy.
