Join Sally Magnusson to celebrate stories from four vibrant Scottish communities as part of Book Week Scotland 2022.

Whether it's the tales from childhood that captured our imagination, the larger than life figures that helped shape our communities, or stories about coming to Scotland for the very first time, these pieces highlight Scotland's rich tradition of storytelling, paying tribute to histories already told, and those still to be written.

The wonderful pieces in this event have been generously shared by people from the Garnock Valley, Port Glasgow and Greenock, Lochgelly and the South Islands of the Western Isles. Each story was shared by a member of the public as part of Community Campfires, supported by Scotland's Year of Stories 2022.
