Aye Write Logo

Scotland has many fantastic book festivals and this April readers will be flocking to Glasgow for Aye Write! Glasgow’s Book Festival.

Aye Write! was founded in 2005, and since 2007 has been an annual fixture on Glasgow’s culture calendar. The festival takes place in the beautiful Mitchell Library, one of Europe’s largest public libraries, which has been one of Glasgow’s iconic landmarks since it opened in 1911.

The festival has a packed programme for it’s 10th year, with many favourites from the past few editions of Bloody Scotland appearing. To help you navigate your way through the programme we’ve teamed up with organisers to pick out the vast selection of crime writing events for you to enjoy.
