Booked! is a dynamic and diverse programme which takes authors and artists to locations across Scotland for one-off events, residencies and festivals. To deliver this work and engage as many people as possible, we rely on the support of countless local partners without whom we would be unable to spread across the country effectively.
Booked! is supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery and patrons of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

Clara Govier, Head of Charities, People’s Postcode Lottery, said “Booked! allows the Edinburgh International Book Festival to reach communities from across Scotland and we are delighted that as a result of funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery, you don’t just have to visit Charlotte Square Gardens to enjoy what the Book Festival has to offer.”
Nick Barley, Director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, said “A massive thank you to all players of People’s Postcode Lottery, who have awarded the fantastic sum of £200,000 to the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Plans can now be put in place to develop a wide-ranging programme of exciting literature events and activities which will focus on instilling a love of books and an enjoyment of reading in people of all ages and levels of ability in communities across Scotland in 2016.’
