One Book - One Edinburgh campaign Kidnaps The List

The Edinburgh City of Literature Trust’s Citywide Reading Campaign launches its One Book - One Edinburgh campaign on Wednesday 31 January at Edinburgh Castle. The campaign runs for the whole of February 2007 and aims to get the whole city reading the same book, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped. Three new editions of the book - a graphic novel, a children’s adaptation, and and an annotated version of the original text with an introduction written by Louise Welsh (pictured) - will be published for the campaign, 10,000 copies of which will be distributed free across the capital throughout schools, libraries, coffee shops and bookshops and various events will take place at city libraries and art centres. The List are media partners in this bold campaign, so stay tuned to your favourite arts and events guide for our exclusive take on the project. (AR)
