Edinburgh International Book Festival: 15 to 31 August 2020

15 August 2020

As the Edinburgh International Book Festival can't put on their usual 900+ event Festival in the lovely tented village in Charlotte Square Gardens, they've curated a special online edition. From 15-31 August, enjoy events for adults and children for free. Through the magic of technology, they'll be crossing continents and time zones to beam events from more than 30 countries straight into your home. What's more, you'll be able chat with fellow Festival goers via digital chatrooms and take part in Q&A sessions, and you'll even be able to meet the author and get your books signed (selected events).
All events are free and available to watch on the book festival's website
There are also two special events for publishers:
ONLINE BOOKSHOP: support the festival by buying books
You can buy event-related books from the festival's online bookshop which features a wide range of Scottish publishers' books. It also highlights Edinburgh's other bookshops.
