All Events

Small events, large events, events for adults, for babies, children and teens – the Edinburgh International Book Festival offers something for just about every age and every interest, bringing readers and writers together for entertainment, discussion and pure inspiration.

We welcome more than 800 authors in over 700 events each year including novelists, poets, scientists, philosophers, sportsmen, illustrators, graphic artists, historians, musicians, biographers, environmentalists, economists, Nobel and Booker prize-winners and many more besides.

The 2014 Festival will take place from 9-25 August and the programme will be announced in June.

In the meantime, why not visit our Media Gallery to see highlights from past Book Festivals, including event recordings and photographs.
