Scotland’s about to get LIT! Literature, of course. The Edinburgh International Book Festival is probably one of the BIG THREE lit fests around the world. And this year, it takes place between 14 and 30 August, just as my neighbours to the North are finally opening up from their Covid lockdowns. Loads to see and hear for kids and for adults. It’s certainly one of the big literary powwows of the year. You can check it out or get your tickets at There will be a lot of authors – hopefully representing a diversity of views – and a workshop or two.

This year, there are over 250 online activities running alongside the live festival. Worth having a look, to be sure 🙂
