Since its inception, Book Week Scotland has offered online content as part of its national programme, so that you can get involved in the fun whichever way suits you best. This year we’ve curated themed boxsets as YouTube Playlists, gathering together some of Book Week Scotland’s greatest hits, so you can revisit a favourite moment or discover something new.
Inspired by Scotland
This boxset is a selection of authors talking about how Scotland has inspired their writing. It features Jackie Kay, Denise Mina, Hannah Lavery, Graeme Macrae Burnett, Louise Welsh, Evie Wyld, Raman Mundair and Harry Josephine Giles.
This boxset features videos under five minutes and is the perfect option for a quick shot of bookish joy during your lunchbreak or whilst on the move. It features Sarah J Maas, Jason Reynolds, Val McDermid, William Letford, Matt Haig, Salma El-Wardany and Miriam Khan.
Book Week Scotland is all about the joy of books. Lean into your playful side with this boxset of games. It features videos of comics writers playing a Treasure Island role playing game, and crime writers playing Cluedo.
