‘Edinburgh a City of Readers’
Edinburgh is famous across the world as a city of writers – but it’s also a city of readers.
Working with The Scottish Book Trust’s Book Week Scotland festival and the Being Human festival, the Reading Communities project team and The Open University will help you explore how people, both in the past and the present, have read in (and about) Edinburgh. You can also tell us about your own reading habits, preferences and interests as part of our group discussion activity. Our interactive events are free. Join us for the following activities:
16.30-18.00: ‘Hands-on’ facilitated group discussion, with examples of Edinburgh readers from the past at Blackwell’s Bookshop, 53-62 South Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1YS
18.00-19.30: Reception with refreshments and public readings from the works of Scottish writers from the past, as well as readings by contemporary creative writers, on the theme of ‘Edinburgh as a City of Readers’ at Blackwell’s Bookshop, 53-62 South Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1YS
