We've launched the 2013 programme!

After months of hard work gathering together hundreds of authors from across the globe and crafting over 700 events, we are thrilled to unveil our 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival programme. Hopefully some of you will have already have had the chance to look through the literary gems on offer - we hope you enjoy choosing what and who to see.

This year we celebrate our 30th birthday, looking back over the past three decades to the year we started in 1983 and forwards thirty years to 2043.
Use our website search fields to browse events - you can search by author, subject or theme or by the age of your child if you are looking for children's events.
You can also view events by looking at the brochure: download a PDF file of the brochure.
Or if you'd like us to post you a copy, email your name and address to with the subject line 'brochure request'.

Transporting the big 30 from the Signet Library in Parliament Square,Edinburgh back to our office on the other side of town.

Down the Mound and past the Galleries...

Finally reaching Charlotte Square Gardens a bit puffed, a little bruised but generally intact.

Safely tucked into a corner of our office - waiting for August.
