Annual Made in Scotland book challenge arrives from next week.

CHILDREN IN MORAY are set to be invited once more by the Council’s Libraries Service to take part in the annual ‘Made in Scotland’ reading challenge.

Showcasing books that are set in Scotland or those written by Scots and living in Scotland, the challenge is open to children of school age who are tasked with borrowing and reading four eligible titles during October and in the first two weeks of November.

The available books under the challenge is staggering – including many of the authors who have appeared at the Spirit of Speyside book festivals over the years.

Senior librarian Jane Sandell said: “Made In Scotland is now a well-established event on the libraries’ calendar and every year more and more young people take part.

“There is so much excellent writing coming out of Scotland these days, as well as a wealth of writing from the past. This challenge truly offers something for everyone, whatever their preferred genres.”

Children can register to take part at any Moray Council library and everyone who completes the challenge will be invited to an exclusive author event with Vivian French at which they will be presented with their prizes.
