Literature Festivals


Literature festivals provide a great meeting point for authors and their readers - or potential readers. We are delighted that German-language writers have been present at the Hay-on-Wye Festival, the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Cheltenham Literature Festival in recent years.

Edinburgh International Book Festival


Annually in August

The Edinburgh Book Festival is an incredibly vibrant affair. The city is alive with the buzz of the festival so that just walking through the parks and squares is an experience. Whether you’re an old-hand at the festival, or coming to it for the first time (perhaps drawn to the city by the novels of Ian Rankin, Muriel Spark, or the Isabel Dalhousie books by Alexander McCall Smith), there’s a staggering choice of events to sample, voices known and new. Last year the Book Festival hosted 700 events at Charlotte Square Gardens featuring 650 authors from 40 countries.

The Times Cheltenham Literary Festival:

Hay Festival

Annually in late May - early June

Hay-on-Wye. What images does this name conjure up? The meandering River Wye, the few streets of pretty houses, the ruined castle, the inviting pubs and inns. A Mecca for antiquarian and second-hand booksellers. A Mecca, too, for nature-lovers with the wildness of the Brecon Beacons beckoning and the night-time noise of owls and lambs. And once a year it becomes the bustling home to writers from all over the world, buzzing with conversation and debate, readings and performances. But beware, once a visitor has tasted of the Hay Festival, like the fairy food of Christina Rossetti’s Goblin Market, he or she is under its spell and will have to go back for more.
