Book Week Scotland takes place between Monday 27th November and Sunday 3rd December 2017.
The Scottish Book Trust are offering funding to support joint intedisciplinary learning between secondary schools and libraries to support Book Week Scotland.
The theme for Book Week Scotland 2017 is Nourish. Although not all events or activities need to be informed by the theme, we will be looking to build a range of events, related to books, reading and writing, under the following four programme strands:
- Justice and Sustainability – equality of access to food and equality of access to culture, how our food and our culture is produced/made
- Breaking Bread – Sharing culture, identities and traditions, international, travel, communities, faith and food, making connections using food and story
- Nourishing Ourselves – health and wellbeing, how we nourish our whole beings, books as sources of mental, spiritual and emotional nourishment, different types of reading for different appetites
- Feast – celebration, a cornucopia, something for everyone to try, fun, playful.
Applications are open from secondary schools and libraries until Friday 2nd June 2017.
