For the past three years, Aros has thrown a vibrant summer festival on the Isle of Skye to celebrate stories, readers and writers. The Skye Book Festival focuses on Gaelic literature, Scottish authors and literature about Scotland.
A variety of writers, including leading novelists, poets, historians and children’s authors, travel to Skye to meet their readers and talk about their work. The PBFA run a charming antiquated book fair with original and unique books on display and for sale. There are also marvellous storytelling events, including some, like Sgeulachdan Ghaidhlig, in Gaelic.
You can still view Skye Book Festival 2013′s programme here. After the rousing success of this year’s festival, plans are already underway for the Skye Book Festival 2014. Please send any suggestions or proposals for authors, talks or events to firstname.lastname@example.org.
