Welcome to the Book Festival
Our 2023 hybrid Book Festival features over 500 events for adults, children and teens. With over 550 authors and illustrators joining us from across the world to share their stories, ideas and perspectives. Events take place at the Book Festival's charming, leafy village at Edinburgh College of Art in the heart of the city's Old Town at Lauriston Place. Around 100 of our events will also be livestreamed for you to watch from home, with a Pay What You Can ticket price, with most available to watch on-demand after the Festival.
