Edinburgh International Book Festival: 11 to 27 August 2018

11 August 2018

The world's largest book festival takes place every August in Edinburgh and our members are always well represented with their books on sale in the festival bookshops and their authors taking part in events. 

EIBF hosts various events at other times of the year and also runs the Booked! programme which takes the Edinburgh International Book Festival on the road around Scotland, throughout the year, supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery.

This year's festival runs from 11 to 27 August. For more details, see the EIBF website. The programme launched on 7 June 2018. Online booking opens at 8.30am on Tuesday 26 June. For other ways to book, see the EIBF website.

The book tents

The adults' book tent features what is probably the biggest selection of our publisher members' books for sale that you will find anywhere. They are set out by publisher name.

There's also a great selection of members' books to buy in the children's tent. You'll find everything from board books for babies to fiction for young adult, along with reference and educational.
