2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival

By Edinburgh International Book Festival

The Edinburgh International Book Festival is one of the largest public celebrations of the written word in the world. Internationally renowned writers and thinkers from around the world gather in Charlotte Square Gardens, the Book Festival’s home, to trade stories, share ideas, discuss the hot topics of the day, inspire audiences and answer questions. The result is a wonderfully diverse programme of creative, joyful, interactive experiences. You can listen to some of the author events and discussions in this free series of podcasts – a small selection of what went on in Edinburgh during August 2019. There are also videos of selected events on Edinburgh International Book Festival’s YouTube channel (edbookfest).
