Stairwell in Scotland
Stairwell Books, a north of England publisher, based in York, is sponsoring their own Scottish Writing festival at the Scottish Storytelling Centre adjacent to the John Knox House Museum on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. The festival features Scottish Writers or authors with books based in Scotland.
The event takes place on the Friday the 17th and Saturday the 18th of September. On the Friday evening there will be talks and presentations from Rebecca Smith, whose Young adult Novel, Shadow Cat Summer is set in the Highlands, Yvonne Hendry, whose novel The Water Bailiff’s Daughter set in the Lowlands is gaining traction, and a guest spot, by accomplished poet Bob Beagrie who is based in Northumberland’s Teesside University.
On the Saturday, Stairwell has invited a number of Scottish and Northern publishers to share the Scottish Story Telling Centre with tables of their own books. This is a great opportunity for readers to see and buy a range of excellent books that which may not grace the shelves of the large retail bookselling chains.
