Although the festival programme has yet to be announced, I’ve been invited to appear at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, which is terrifying and thrilling in equal measure.
I’m not sure how much I’m supposed to say yet so best stick to the basics: the event will run from 14-30 August 2010, and the full programme will be announced on 17 June. The EIBF is the world’s largest public celebration of the written word and takes place in the heart of Edinburgh – a city I have long wanted to visit. The plan is to convince my publisher that I will need several nights there at least – to cope with the . . . er . . . jet lag.
Further details to follow, as I say. Check back for updates or visit www.edbookfest.co.uk.
