Edinburgh Book Festival 2013


The Edinburgh Book Festival launched this week, with over 700 events taking place across 17 days of all things literature. It first started in 1983 and so the festival is now in its 30th year, and now runs its own independent bookselling operation, with proceeds from book sales invested back into the running of the event.

The line up of authors and the schedule of events looks fantastic; looking back over the last 30 years and forward to the changes that might take place in the next 30. Authors appearing include Neil Gaiman, Kate Mosse and Margaret Atwood.

Tweets from @edbookfest are constant and great for little teasers of the events. Plus I’m loving the short story challenges they’re setting each day – proving a story really can be as short as 120 characters, with just one word as inspiration.
