Scottish Book Trust Book Week Scotland - 13 to 19 November 2023

Book Week Scotland – now in its twelfth year – is an annual celebration of books and reading that takes place across the country in November.

During Book Week, people of all ages and walks of life come together to share the joy of reading. The theme this year is ‘Adventure’ and together with Scottish Book Trust's curated programme, external partners including unions deliver hundreds of unique, exciting events and activities that celebrate the transformative power of reading. They are joined in this celebration by Scotland’s authors, poets, playwrights, storytellers, and illustrators to bring a packed programme of events and projects to life.

Book Week Scotland would not exist without the creativity and dedication of its partner organisations. Their focus on providing bold, inspiring events and activities for their communities embodies the spirit of the week, building on its success and reach across Scotland year after year.
