Scottish dispatches: the new generation
Presented by Edinburgh International Book Festival
This is a unique time to be thinking about and responding to Scottish identity, and the Edinburgh International Book Festival is proud to present an exciting selection of writers who are heralding a new generation of Scottish literature. In a series of readings and performances, Beldina Odenyo (Heir of the Cursed), Nadine Aisha Jassat, Leyla Josephine, Michael Pedersen, Courtney Stoddart and Roseanne Watt will reflect on their life and art, and what it means to be a young person living in Scotland today. New writing can depart from, build upon and reject what has come before, and these newly commissioned pieces – created especially for Literature Live Around the World – are dispatches from around the country which speak to Scotland now.
