Fresh into the new year (the lunar one!), let’s rewind and take a nosey into what Doric Books did in 2022!
We rhymed with Jackie and Sheena, we blethered with our local care homes and their lovely residents, we chattered away with the Rotary clubs, and even found out about flapper skates!
Our highlights of the year include:
- Our book ‘The Tint Aig’ being nominated for the Scots Language Award 2022
- Jackie being nominated as best Scots speaker for the second time at the Scots Language Awards
- Collaborating with Macduff Marine Aquarium on ‘Cedric e Flapper Skate’
- Going football mad with The Denis Law Legacy Trust in Aberdeen and Rose Reilly in Stewarton (making us even more excited about this year’s events for World Book Day)
- Doing our bit towards saving the earth by recycling damaged books into Christmas decorations
- Jackie attended the Edinburgh International Book Festival to spread the word about flapper skates being one of Scotland’s most endangered animals
- We received grants from the Doric Board and the Scottish Book Trust (funded by the Scottish Government)
What can you expect from us in 2023?
We are obviously continuing our storytelling and publishing books of course! But we have other exciting things planned too, such as:
- World Book Day spent laughing with Rose Reilly, of ‘Fitba Legends’ fame
- Visiting various schools, starting with Meldrum Primary, to share traditional tales and speak about the process of creating a book
- A collaboration with Save Our Wildcats to produce another book in our Scottish Endangered Species series
- Working with Monymusk Primary to create their very own book written in Doric
- Doric Blether sessions in care homes
