JAN 13th - 19th
Max Scratchmann is an illustrator, writer and performer.
He was recently a Take-Away Poet at Portobello Library; an Inky Fingers’ Poet on a Bus on the Lothian Buses’ Edinburgh Tour; and he has just won Third Place for his poem, Snow Globes, in the Dear Scotland 2013 Writing Contest this winter.
His many books include The Last Burrah Sahibs and Scotland for Beginners, which are autobiographical tales of his childhood in colonial India; and his earlier account of downshifting to the isles, Chucking It All, became unintentionally controversial in 2009 when the Lib-Dem MP for Orkney tried to have it banned. The book prevailed, however, despite the defection of its original publisher, and went on to become a Kindle bestseller.
