Highlights between Nov 23-29 will include an evening with leading fiction writers Helen Fitzgerald and Karen Campbell at the renovated Theatre Royal, a Celebration of Memoir Writing with Renita Boyle and the first ever play at the Ewart Library – An Audience with Mr and Mrs Carnegie.
Book Week Scotland is a national celebration of books and reading. This year’s theme is transformation and through these events Dumfries and Galloway Library Services will be celebrating the powerful and positive impact that books can have on people’s lives.
Councillor Tom McAughtrie said: “It’s great to have these unique events in Dumfries. Being part of the first event held in the newly renovated Theatre Royal and the first play in the Ewart Library are really exciting ways for people to celebrate Book Week Scotland.”
There are also school events planned throughout the region and special Bookbug Sessions.
Everyone can join in the celebrations by collecting a free book, Journeys by the Scottish Book Trust, from any branch library.
