Later this month Nil By Mouth are delighted to, once again, be involved with Book Week Scotland as we host two events in the North and South of Scotland celebrating how books can bring people from all walks of life together.

Author, broadcaster and historian Daniel Gray will read from his new work ‘Scribbles In the Margins: 50 Eternal Delights of Books’ at special events in Orkney and Selkirk Libraries. Daniel will also be joined in Kirkwall by the Former Leader of the Iona Community Ron Ferguson and in the Borders by Scots speaking Poet Thomas Clark as they discuss the power of the written word to inspire and nourish.

We kick off in Selkirk on Monday 27th November at 7pm with Daniel performing in Orkney Library the next evening Tuesday 28th also with a 7pm start. Both events are free thanks to support from the Scottish Book Trust.

This is the third year Nil by Mouth have been supported by the Trust to hold events celebrating how reading can bring people together. Anyone who has seen Daniel Gray perform on our ‘Kiss Bigotry Goodbye’ tour knows what a treat is in store and we are delighted that Ron and Thomas have agreed to take part in the event.

We hope to see you there!
