An update from the Birlinn team

  18 Mar '20   |  Posted by: Birlinn

We have made the difficult decision to cancel all author events until the end of May as a result of concerns surrounding coronavirus. We are working hard to offer alternative ways of spreading the word about our exciting new releases.

All of us are currently working from home, but Birlinn is absolutely still open for business! You can buy books from our website with FREE P&P to the UK, and until midnight on Wednesday 18th March we are running a 20% discount across all books.

Many of our books are also available from our local independent bookshops, including Golden Hare Books, The Edinburgh Bookshop, Lighthouse Bookshop, The Portobello BookshopFar From the Madding Crowd, Atkinson-Pryce Books, Topping & Co., Mainstreet Trading, The Highland Bookshop, Yeadon’s of Elgin & Banchory, and The Bookmark (amongst many, many others!). We are so grateful for all the work booksellers do for our books, so we would be delighted if you could support your local businesses particularly during these trying times.

Please keep an eye on our website and social media for all our latest news and updates.

Stay safe and keep reading!
