Comhairle nan Leabhraichean / The Gaelic Books Council

The Lead Organisation for Gaelic Literature in Scotland.

Set up in 1968 in Glasgow and now a free-standing charitable company with five employees. The Gaelic Books Council has responsibility for supporting Scottish Gaelic authors and publishers, and for raising the profile and reach of Scottish Gaelic books in Scotland and internationally. Full editorial advice, guidance and training is available, as well as sales and marketing advice and support. The Council works in partnership with local and national literary festivals to raise the profile of Scottish Gaelic writers and offers ‘Meet the Author’ opportunities to schools and universities. The Council has its own bookshop which stocks all Gaelic and Gaelic-related books in print, and also offers online, mail order and mobile sales services at a wide range of national and local events.
