I rashly accepted an invitation from Professor Tariq Muneer of the Transport Research Institute at Napier University to read a few poems at their Electric Car Event on 12th October. A hall full of engineers and motor enthusiasts was a novel experience for me, but I found them to be a receptive audience. One poem even had the word ‘car’ and ‘throttle’ in it!
Reading can take us to places even beyond our dreams! On 5th October the Scottish Book Trust launched an ambitious programme of events for Book Week Scotland which this year will run from 21 to 27 November. It was fun to be part of the launch with other authors.
Look out for free books and for events near you!
