Running 14th - 30th August, this year Edinburgh is staging a hybrid festival with events streamed online along with many in-person events held at the Edinburgh College of Art within Edinburgh University.
Calibre are supporting their Story Nation programme, which brings the Book Festival direct to communities across Scotland who wouldn't otherwise be able to attend. We have worked with them to create a fabulous selection of books by featured authors from the festival, so Calibre members can join in with the events and then listen to the book in our collection.
Our news page has all the book details and event links you need, and you can find quick access to our featured authors here. We have also selected some great podcasts from previous festivals with other authors you can listen to in our collection that we hope you'll enjoy.
