Lesley Riddoch’s Blossom was a joyful intervention into Scottish independence discussions before the 2014 referendum. The award-winning journalist shone a light on community action and the everyday heroes who showed Scotland has the potential to grow and succeed. Five years later, as Brexit tears at the fabric of the nation, is Riddoch still optimistic? Find out as she discusses the timely update to her glowing book.
