A year in Booked!

Celebrating a successful year on the road…

Booked! has been bigger and better than ever this year. We’ve travelled far and wide, engaged thousands of people and worked with hundreds of partners, authors, artists and more. We want to give you a sense of what Booked! has achieved and what we intend to do as this still young portion of our work develops further in 2017.

It’s extremely enriching, both for audience members – who may not have regular access to such events, and for authors, to engage with audiences outside city cultural centres.
– Shazea Quraishi, author

Booked! is a multifaceted programme exploring stories and inspiring a love of literature among people from different communities, backgrounds and ages. This year’s success couldn’t have been achieved without the input, hard work and enthusiasm not only of our event partners and authors but of audiences willing to share stories, create artworks, ask questions and much more. We’re also grateful for the continued support of the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, and patrons of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
