The Reading Room will be dark in August, while everyone enjoys the summer weather that has come upon us.
Join us for our long-awaited evening with author and journalist, Roger Hutchinson, on Tuesday, September 29. Hutchinson will discuss his book, St Kilda: A People’s History, which delves into the highly romanticized lives of the Scottish Gaels who lived on this group of islands.
While you anticipate our next meeting, be sure to fill the void with the exciting Skye Book Festival/Feis Leabhraichean An Eilein 2015, at Aros, in Portree, September 3-5. With the line-up of favorite writers and artists, and the PBFA Antiquarian Book Fair, you may stave off hunger for author contact for the next few weeks until we see you again.

The Reading Room regrets that there will be no Baker Prize competition for 2015, but the launch of the Second Reading Room Anthology will take place on October 27 of this year.
Mum is the word for now, but we are running up to a big event in November, which should bring a little froth to your literary mugs. More on that soon, so til then, keep reading and writing those books.
