Become a Benefactor
- we’ve brought thousands of international authors to the Book Festival, ensuring that our programme represents diverse voices from all over the world;
- we created our experimental Playing With Books series, which sees actors and musicians bring books to life on the stage;
- we were able to give free books to 3,000 school children attending an event in a satellite book festival held in Glenrothes, Fife;
- we were able to make improvements to the physical accessibility of our old site in Charlotte Square Gardens, making it more welcoming to disabled visitors.
