The National Year of Reading will be launched all over the UK on Wednesday (see Read On pull-out with this issue). Inverclyde gets off to a strong start with Scottish author Ian Rankin visiting Greenock Central Library to discuss the detective genre, and storyteller Linda Bandelier visiting two primary schools and a pre-five nursery in Port Glasgow.

At the same time Inverclyde will launch its own Books for Babies pilot project with new parents receiving a free book, nursery rhyme booklet and invitation to song and rhyme sessions at local libraries.

Other writers to visit Inverclyde from September onwards include Mairi Hedderwick and Aileen Paterson for younger children, Dilys Rose and Keith Brumpton for older primary classes, and Edwin Morgan and Iain Crichton Smith for secondary schools. Further information from Greenock Central Library on 01475 712323.
