All voices matter and deserve to belong. Belonging is more than a privilege. Belonging, I am now convinced, can be a choice. To mark the Year of Stories for Book Week Scotland we're thrilled to welcome Barbara Henderson to the bookshop to talk about her wonderful book and the stories within it.

Barbara has been Scottish by inclination for 30 years. She fell in love with Scotland and its people when she left Germany at the age of 19. Now a children's author, storyteller and teacher in the Highlands, she gives us a lively glimpse of Scotland through the eyes of an EU immigrant from her first ceilidh to Brexit and the choppy seas of citizenship.

Scottish by Inclination also celebrates the varied contributions of 30 remarkable Europeans - beer brewers, entrepreneurs, academics, artists and activists - who have chosen to call Scotland home.
