About International Book Festival
From 12 to 28 August the Edinburgh International Book Festival will serve up a feast of world-class literary talent for adults and children of all ages in the leafy green space of Charlotte Square Gardens in the heart of the historic city. The Book Festival will welcome Nobel, Booker and Pulitzer prize-winners, a host of bestselling authors from around the world as well as over 40 debut novelists. Audiences can expect to be entertained and enthralled, to meet their favourite writers, to have their imaginations stimulated and to participate in some healthy discussions.
There is much to enjoy during a visit to the Book Festival. There will be debates, writing workshops, theatrical performances, poetry readings, storytelling and book signings for everyone from babies to adults. The beautiful, tree-lined Charlotte Square Gardens (at the west end of George Street, a minute away from Princes Street), is a wonderful space in which to sit, talk, think, read, play and be entertained. Entry to the Gardens is free.
