Book Week Scotland events

Glasgow Libraries celebrate all things books and reading with Book Week Scotland from 19-24 November.

What is Book Week Scotland?

Our week-long extravaganza will feature a whole host of events and activities from authors and writers and both the Mitchell and local libraries throughout the city will be taking part. We'll feature events to pique any interest as well as special activities for families. 

This year's theme is Rebel! We'll be exploring what the word Rebel means to society, examining different views and celebrating our favourite Rebels. We'll also be reaching out to you to find out what your most rebellious stories are as well as sharing our own! 

What's On?

Denise Mina & Liam McIlvanney, Graeme Macrae Burnett, Jackie Copleton and Bernard McLaverty (Autumn Voices) are just a few of our highlights for what is set to be a spectacular week. And not forgetting a special appearance from Scotland's very own Oor Wullie!

How can I get involved?

There's lots of ways to get involved in Book Week Scotland! You can come along to one of our events for starters. But Book Week Scotland is about celebrating reading. So why not set yourself a personal challenge to read a new genre during that week. Is there a novel you've been putting off reading for years? Give it a go during Book Week Scotland. And of course pop along to your local Glasgow Library to borrow a great selection of books, or even borrow an eBook with our online library. You can also pop along to one of special Book Week Scotland quiz events and test your Scottish knowledge!
