Book Week Scotland in Fife

Book Week Scotland 27 November – 1 December 2017

It’s nearing that time of year again when we tickle the taste buds of readers across Fife and invite them to join us in a celebration of the written word – book your place at one (or many!) of ONFife Libraries’ Book Week Scotland events this winter.

Amongst the various authors and personalities featuring on the packed programme, we’re looking forward to hosting the head of Scotland’s premier tennis family Judy Murray (appearing at Lochgelly Centre on 30 Nov) and renowned Dundonian cookery and food writer Sue Lawrence (Kirkcaldy Galleries on 28 Nov).

Echoing Book Week Scotland 2017’s theme of ‘Nourish’, we’ll be offering a smorgasbord of events which will cater to reading tastes of all ages. Whether it’s our bread making & poetry workshop, turning detective at the murder mystery event, enjoying a taste of cheese, wine and horror or simply joining us for a reading lunch, we’re sure there will be something to satisfy every appetite in libraries all over Fife. Our full menu is available below.
