Interesting Edinburgh event on 26th July. Particularly interested in the Radio workshop and the cake (of course) :
Scottish Book Trust will be hosting an afternoon of events featuring the award-winning writer Anne Donovan (winner of an SAC Book Award and short-listed for the Orange Prize for her first novel, Buddha Da) and exploring the books world from a number of perspectives.
The day will feature:
Anne Donovan giving a talk on her favourite short stories
Anne Donovan workshop on the difference between writing short stories and writing novels
Cover design workshop by Canongate Books’ Art Director
A session on commissioning and dramatising stories for radio by a BBC Radio Scotland producer.
Readers’ Days are particularly aimed at members of reading groups, but are open to anyone who enjoys books and wants to find out more about authors, publishers, and how the literary world operates. Tickets for the day are £8 (£5 for concessions) and include tea/coffee and cake. We will be running a book swap stall, so please bring along a book (or books) that you don’t think you’ll re-read yourself, to swap on the day. Contact the box office of the Scottish Storytelling Centre on 0131 556 9579 Monday to Saturday 10.00 am – 6.00 pm.
