Bursting the banks: our summer Booked! Festivals

Taking the buzz of the Book Festival to Galashiels, Greenock, and Aberdeen…

At the centre of our summer activities were three Booked! Festivals, two-day mini events which took place in Galashiels, Greenock and Aberdeen in August while the Festival in Charlotte Square Gardens continued. We were able to draw on the authors attending Edinburgh to create quality programmes in tandem with our local partners in each area, bringing audiences face-to-face with authors of international significance as well as offering writers and illustrators the opportunity to expand their experience of the Book Festival and our work. The video above takes you on tour with us to the three towns, offering insights from authors, audiences and partners alike on what Booked! can achieve.
