We are delighted to welcome you to the second Byres Road Book Festival, after a great inaugural year in 2016. We have a broad range of events and activities that we hope will engage all ages and many interests.
Amongst more than twenty events in this programme you’ll find witty Gaelic women, four crime writers in search of a plot, a poet working with a cartoonist, one of Scotland’s finest literary Irish imports, superheroes and an innovative project by Scottish PEN.
So join us in the West End for a September Weekend filled with books, conversations and laughter, and spend some time exploring all that Byres Road and the lanes have to offer.
