Support Us

This year, 2023, we're celebrating 40 years since the first Book Festival took place in Edinburgh. Over the course of those four decades, the Edinburgh International Book Festival has grown and flourished but also evolved. However, what’s remained constant is our commitment to connect authors and audiences in exciting live events and conversations which celebrate creativity and ideas.
While it’s good to look back, we want to focus even more on what the future holds. We’d love you to help us keep creating precious and memorable Book Festival moments over the next 40 years, both for the supporters who love the Festival and attend year after year, and also for a new generation of audiences of all ages and from all backgrounds.
