Edinburgh International Book Festival: 10 to 26 August 2019

10 August 2019

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. 

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

This year's festival runs from 10 to 26 August. For more details, see the EIBF website. The programme launches in June 2019.

The book tents

The book tents in Charlotte Square and George Street feature what is probably the biggest selection of our publisher members' books for sale that you will find anywhere. You'll find everything from board books for babies to award-winning fiction.
