“Intae the Snaw” book launch.

The launch for “Intae the Snaw” – and my wife Sara Clark’s novel, “Summer’s Lease” went fabulously. In addition to a whole host of friends, family, and miscellaneous well-wishers, we were immensely privileged to be introduced by Paul Wheelhouse MSP.

I thought it would be a great opportunity to talk a bit about the Scots language, which it always seems cheeky to do at ordinary readings – the video of my speech (and my reading) is below. The book itself also contains an introductory essay on Scots in the modern world, if you’re interested in finding out more!
