Edinburgh International Book Festival 22/08/18

Yesterday the Vennie took a group to the Edinburgh International Book Festival. The Re-imagination event spoke about the new towns built in Scotland. Towns included Glenrothes, E.Kilbride, Irvine, Cumbernuld and of course Livingston. It was interesting to learn about the backstories of each town and how they were created and for what purpose. Two people talked from each town. The people who talked about Livingston was Laura Mclean and Sophie Elliott. They did a fantastic job at telling everyone about Livingston’s past, present and hopes for the future. Well done to both of them and everyone who attended.
