Book Week Scotland

We're kicking off Book Week Scotland with events in Ormiston, North Berwick and Longniddry libraries this Monday.

At Ormiston library join pupils from the local primary school to hear storyteller Ewan McVicar tell tales of David Livingstone and son of Ormiston, David Moffat. No need to book but note that this event starts at 1.30pm, not 2.00pm as advertised in the programme.

There are still places left for the creative writing workshop in North Berwick library on Monday at 4pm. Daniela Sacerdoti will be leading the workshop and is enjoying huge success with her recent children's book, Really Weird Removals, which has been nominated for this year's Scottish Children's Book Awards.
The workshop is for adults/late teens. Phone the library for details 01620 820700

If you can't manage out during the day, head along to Longniddry library at 7.30pm to listen to Victoria Hendry reading from her debut novel, "A Capital Union." May not surprise you to learn that the current big questions for Scotland - independence, cultural identity, austerity were all being asked during World War II. A wonderful novel based in Edinburgh in the 1940s.
