Napier Big Read, Big Vote!

We are proud to be launching #NapierBigRead 19/20 in Book Week Scotland!

This year the Napier Big Read is connecting students and staff at Edinburgh Napier University, and partnering with the University of the West of Scotland to join two universities across Scotland in the shared joy of books and reading.

Book Week Scotland logoWe are launching in Book Week Scotland, a nationwide annual celebration of books and reading that takes place across Scotland. During Book Week Scotland, people of all ages and walks of life come together in libraries, schools, community venues and workplaces to share and enjoy books and reading.

We have a new campaign – more inclusive, and celebrating a more diverse range from the rich heritage of Scottish literature, all published by our Merchiston Publishing imprint.

This year we are inviting students and staff to vote for the next Big Read!

We are nominating –

4 #NapierBigRead books across
3 campuses in Edinburgh
2 universities across Scotland, during
1 national Book Week.

Join us on Wednesday 20 November!
