Bookie Updates: Ah Dinnae Ken and Crowdfunding

Following our decision to join the Let Books be Books  for our childrens project,  The Day Boy and The Night Girl  we also wanted to update you further on our YA project Ah Dinnae Ken.

Now things have also been progressing rapidly for our other project, Ah Dinnae KenRight now we are halfway through our crowdfunding campaign to support the print and distribution of Ah Dinnae Ken.

And we wanted to take this time to share our message and our belief in this project in the hope that you would be interested in supporting and becoming involved in our project.

So here is a little summary about who we are and why we are doing this. And a little sneak peek at the supporters we’ve gotten so far!

Hello there! We are a team postgraduate publishing students at Edinburgh Napier University who are currently working on a live book project for Merchiston Publishing, in-house publishing arm of Edinburgh Napier University and the Scottish Centre for the Book. Merchiston Publishing is a not-for-profit publishing house which distributes copies of its books freely, and is supported by the generous donations of organizations such as the Edward Clark Trust.  See more at: http://www.sponsume.com/project/ah-dinnae-ken-stories-scottish-identity#sthash.KPdFi4VS.dpuf

What does it mean to be Scottish? Can Scottishness be defined, and is there really a difference between Scotland and the rest of the UK? Some of today’s leading Scottish authors for young adult literature – Cathy MacPhail, Claire McFall, Cathy Forde, Diana Hendry, J.A. Henderson, and others – address these questions and more, in this thought-provoking collection of stories about national identity. Each story is unique, some are amusing, others moving, but together they show how different people, ideas, and even dialects make up the Scotland we know and love today. The book also features a foreword by Scottish journalist and broadcaster, Stuart Cosgrove.

We really believe in this project and we want to copies of the book to as many schools as we possibly can. So please take a minute to check out our link and watch our little video featuring Kenny the Book who just wants to be shared in schools.

Thank you x

Heya, my name is Maebhe and i am bit of a booknerd and all round curious critter. So i hope to inspire and share some of my loves, from, ofcourse books :), crafts and to general advice which i may be able to give from life, love and even the odd girlie moment, as i am rather handy with a hairbrush and some bobby-pins, as my mum is a hairdresser. But i would love to hear from you's: questions, opinions... Love, Maebhe
