Book Week Scotland Leith: Day 1 Highlights

Yesterday we visited the Kirkgate Shopping Centre, the Cats Protection League, Kirkgate Barbers and a church to ask the people of Leith what they love reading.

We gave out free ‘My Favourite Place‘ Books and  flyers for our Memories of Leith event this Saturday.

Here are our Day 1 highlights:
