First Minister's Reading List 2019 Launch

  • The Orchard St Mary’s Road, Melrose TD6 9LJ (map)

The 2019 First Minister's Reading List will be announced by Sally Magnusson and Jane-Frances Kelly.

The David Hume Institute is delighted to present its 2019 First Minister’s Summer Reading List. Bringing together some of the best recent writing from Scotland and beyond, the list is intended as a fresh way to stimulate debate about the state of the nation and the world. While the Institute does not endorse every view expressed in the books, they are all good reads, based on evidence and with something of significance to say. We hope the First Minister – or indeed any Scot – will find them thought-provoking and an enjoyable addition to their summer break. 

This event explains the reasons for compiling the list and why the specific books were chosen for this year.
