Book of the Week: Wain

By Jay Hulme

The cover of the book Wain by Rachel Plummer

Written by Rachel Plummer, illustrated by Helene Boppert, published by The Emma Press

February is LGBT History Month, and what better way to welcome it in than by reading this fabulous collection of LGBT+ retellings of traditional Scottish myths and legends?

As well as poems about well known creatures, such as the Loch Ness Monster, and less famous ones, such as Wulvers, this collection also contains lavish watercolour illustrations, curling across every page.

The Emma Press also work with LGBT Youth Scotland to donate copies of the collection to schools, to ensure every LGBT child has the chance to see themselves in what they read.
