Robert Burns anniversary - some ideas?

Next year is the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns. It sounds like there will be a 10 month festival in Scotland to celebrate this:

Ellen from SLNSW thought of two reading lists which could be useful:

* Writers of Scotland (sorted by Nancy Pearl's doorways to make it interesting (character, setting, story, language or all of the above)

* Books to read while drinking whisky (Ellen thought eating haggis or porridge did not quite have the same effect) and this could be a great one to talk about with your readers (with some partnership opportunities as well)

Ellen has set up pages on the RA wiki for these:
Themed Lists
please add your ideas to the wiki (you can e-mail them to Ellen as well).

You might get some ideas from here
