Books, Borders & Bikes (Scotland)

Books, Borders & Bikes is an international festival of Literature & Thought to be held at Traquair House in the Scottish Borders between 20-21 August 2011. The festival explores cultural themes - of freedom, empire, assimilation and memory - using the actual landscape of Traquair grounds, bringing to life these themes in interactive talks, walks, rides and examinations of the countryside and its living history. Visitors can read, listen to, and meet writers and artists in action, on location. This year, there will be a particular focus on the Arab Spring, including writers from Libya, Palestine and Afghanistan as well as Pakistan, India, Zimbabwe and beyond
