Working with ENSA, for a week in March 2014 Publishing staff and students donated free copies of Robert Louis Stevenson’s vampire novella, Olalla, to #BloodyStudents (and actually anyone giving blood).
In addition, we gave our own blood (!) and helped to man Edinburgh’s Blood Donor Centre bus which was booked at Craiglockhart campus for a day.
Over 200 new donors gave blood throughout the week, in addition to returning donors. Everyone received a free copy of Olalla, our new edition of a neglected Stevenson classic (and previously out of print).
In addition, copies were distributed via the Edinburgh Donor Centre in Lauriston (www.scotblood.co.uk/edinburgh).
Did you know that Stevenson’s Olalla pre-dates Stoker’s Dracula!!!
