Book Week Scotland 2013 announced

Book Week Scotland 2013 was announced in Edinburgh this morning – I was invited to the launch by Scottish Book Trust, which delivers the event, because of my children’s literature blog and was really sorry to have a clash of engagements which prevented me from going. Anyway, the lovely folk at SBT sent me a press release and some photographs and I’ve written up the announcement more fully on the children’s blog. The pictures are: “Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs Fiona Hyslop and Scottish authors Denise Mina, Mairi Hedderwick and Richard Holloway showing off their treasures, as Scottish Book Trust launches a hunt for the nation’s cherished objects. The Treasures campaign invites Scots to submit a piece of writing about the item they hold most dear, with a free book featuring the best stories and poems to be given out during Book Week Scotland, running from 25 November to 1 December this year.” Last year, there was a similar campaign on the theme of My favourite place. I meant to enter, but never quite got round to it. Maybe this year when, allegedly, I have more time? We’ll see.

I'd love to hear what you think!
