As part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival's Scotland-wide programme of projects and events, the ReimagiNation Tour takes place in Glenrothes 17-19 May 2018.
The ReimagiNation project is a tour of Scotland's New Towns to mark 70 years since the New Towns planning act. In 1948, Glenrothes was designated as Scotland's second post-war New Town. This festival in May is the culmination of months of community work in the town, and alongside a wide range of public author events, will also host community-led events, showcasing Glenrothes' stories from the perspective of the local community.
