SCOTLAND’S NATIONAL BOOK week from November 23 will see hundreds of events being held around the country – and readers in Moray need not miss the fun.

This year the national reading celebration is on the ‘Transformation’ them, and in Moray that will see all local libraries celebrating the powerful and positive impact that books still bring to lives – even in the electronic generation.

At the region’s main library in Elgin, the Gallery will be transformed into a tearoom from next Monday with afternoon teas served during a ‘crime and cupcakes’ event with Lin Anderson, an acclaimed murder mystery novelist and co-founder of the crim writing festival ‘Bloody Scotland’.

Teas will be provided by Cobbs Café from 3pm – but booking is essential with tickets available now from the Elgin Library at £4 each.

On Thursday, November 26 at 7pm, Lady Claire Macdonald will be advising on how to transform great Scottish produce into great Scottish food.

While that event is free of charge again booking is essential as entry will be by ticket only.

Further details of both events are available by calling the library on 01343 562600.
