All The Fun of the Fair
Unleashed on August 17, 2009
The world’s largest public celebration of the written word has just kicked off – the Edinburgh International Book Festival is open from now until the end of the month, with over 700 events packed into two weeks and many of the world’s big-name authors in attendance. Our own Eve Harvey is a regular at the festival, and so today’s Eve’s Salmagundi Club aims to give you a bit of background and some visitors tips. But if you can’t make it, don’t despair – Eve will be popping in and out, and taking her recorder with her!
As we mention in today’s show, we were lucky enough to interview the festival’s guest director a couple of weeks ago – if you missed it, do listen to Richard Holloway talk about his latest book here.
