Edinburgh International Book Festival: 14 to 30 August 2021

14 August 2021

A stellar line-up of over 300 writers, artists and thinkers from around the globe come together from 14 to 30 August to share their ideas and stories for a changing world. Some events will be online only and some will also be in-person at the new festival site at the University of Edinburgh's Edinburgh College of Art on Lauriston Place (as well as being live-streamed).

Online events can be booked now and tickets for socially-distanced in-person events will go on sale from midday on 22 July 2021.

Events include a programme of events dedicated to all those interested in the business of the book world:

The Book Festival Bookshop will open its doors again during this year's Festival and you'll find it located in the beautiful Old Fire Station building at the new site on Lauriston Place. The online bookshop is open 24/7 and will feature titles from authors in the 2021 programme as well as Scottish publishers. Selected authors will be offering book signings online and in-person too.
