Event and Partner Information

Book Week Scotland wouldn’t be possible without the passion, creativity and hard work of the organisations who get involved, from funded partners, schools and libraries to workplaces, community groups and many more. We’re really excited about all the events you are planning this year and can’t wait to celebrate the power of books and reading with people all over Scotland this November.  

This page includes some key information and dates relating to Book Week. You can find more detailed information in our BWS 2018 Handbook which is available to download at the bottom of this page.
