SALTIRE BOOK OF THE YEAR 2017

Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe by Kapka Kassabova is 2017 Saltire Book of the Year

Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe, looking at the borderlines that exist between countries, cultures and people was announced as the Scottish Book of the Year by the Deputy First Minister John Swinney at the Saltire Literary Awards 2017.
Describing the book, the judges noted: ‘If ever there was a book for our times, it is Border: A journey to the Edge of Europe, delves into the stories of when the lines that separate countries on the map harden once more after their Cold War thaw. It is at once timely and timeless, with Kassabova - the poet and travel writer by trade - blending skills to spin something truly magical, and sadly, entirely necessary.’
Now firmly established as Scotland’s most prestigious annual book awards, the Saltire Society Literary Awards are supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland and celebrate and support literary and academic excellence across six distinct categories. The winner of each individual book award wins a £2,000 cash prize and goes forward to be considered for the Saltire Book of the Year award and an accompanying cash prize of £3,000.
Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe was also named 2017 Saltire Society Scottish Non Fiction Book of the Year.
Other award winners this year included Memory and Straw, Angus Peter Campbell‘s novel about the struggle for freedom, personal identity and what it means to be human won the Scottish Fiction Book of the Year; Goblin by Ever Dundas, a novel set between the past and present with magical realist elements won First Book of the Year; Bird-Woman by Em Strang, a collection dedicated to and claiming kin with every living thing won Scottish Poetry Book of the Year Award; The Light Blue Book: 500 Years of Gaelic Love and Transgressive Verse edited by Peter Mackay & Iain MacPherson which presents a new view of a Gaelic culture of erotic and bawdy poetry was presented the Research Book of the Year Award.
Kapka Kassabova collected both awards at a special ceremony at the Central Hall in Edinburgh on St Andrew’s Day evening (30 November 2017).
Also announced at the awards ceremony was the winner of the 2017 Saltire Publisher of the Year Award, which went to Birlinn, who over its 25 years of publishing, Birlinn has consistently produced interesting, important and quality books with high production values.
Only in its second year, the winner of the Saltire Emerging Publisher of the Year Award was also announced as being presented jointly to founders of indie publisher 404Ink, Laura Jones and Heather McDaid, whose dedication and innovation are changing the face of modern Scottish publishing.
