Rebus in Scots Gaelic at Aye Write!

An anthology of Ian Rankin's Rebus short stories has been published in Scottish Gaelic for the first time.

In Aye Write!, Glasgow's annual book festival, Rankin will discuss the new edition with its translator Gillebride MacMillan, who will also read from the new book. The event takes place on 19 April, with the main conversation in English.

Published by Grace Note Publications, Taghadh de Sgeulachdan Inspeactair Rebus features stories from the collections A Good Hanging (1992) and Beggars Banquet (2002).

Aye Write! has been an annual fixture since 2007. This year it runs from 17-25 April. All events take place in the Mitchell Library.

Among the writers taking part in this year's crime fiction sessions are Ann Cleeves, Irvine Welsh, Stuart MacBride, Neil Broadfoot, Malcolm MacKay, John Gordon Sinclair, Tony Black, Michael J. Malone, Lin Anderson, Julia Crouch, Sarah Hilary, Sabine Durrant, Alex Gray, Sophia Tobin and Robert Ryan.
