Welcome to the Book Festival
Set in a specially created tented village in Charlotte Square Gardens in the heart of Edinburgh, the Edinburgh International Book Festival offers something for just about every age and every interest, bringing readers and writers together for inspiration, entertainment and discussion.
We welcome more than 800 authors in over 700 events each year including novelists, poets, scientists, philosophers, sportsmen, illustrators, comics creators, historians, musicians, biographers, environmentalists, economists, Nobel and Booker prize-winners and many more besides.
The 2015 Book Festival will take place from 15-31 August and full details of the programme, including authors, themes and events with BSL interpretation, will be announced here at noon on Wednesday 10 June.
In the meantime, you can enjoy Festival photographs, listen to or download free podcasts of event recordings and watch exlusive interviews and Festival highlights from past Book Festivals here on our website, on our YouTube channel and on itunes.
