Especially in this age of the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more book conferences and festivals are going online. This protects the participants, but also has the benefit of opening the event up to a larger audience than could normally travel to the venue.
One such festival is Book Week Scotland. Running from 16-22 November 2020, it combines:
- Reading and stories (including for young readers)
- Writing and authors
- Learning and resources (for educators, for example)
Visit their events list page (registration is free for most events) … check out their online resources (including recordings of past years’ events) — I’m bookmarking a great Scottish noir author’s interview … and sign up for the free newsletter.
