Edinburgh International Book Festival 2004 14 - 30 August
In Charlotte square gardens, the tents have been erected, and the bookshelves
built, which means that the 21st Edinburgh International Book Festival
2004 is upon us. Happy Birthday, Book Festival, but you came of age a
long time ago.
Each year the Book Festival has grown in strength and interest, ever since it threw of its cautious bi-annual habit and replaced it with its annual mantle. This has come to pass, principally, due to the enormous dedication of its past and present Directors and Staff. Who apart from creating the most people and child friendly Festival, have grown a Hermetic Garden of discussion and debate that surpasses cultural, religious, philosophical and political barriers. Charlotte Square Gardens in August becomes a tented sanctuary, open to all pilgrims and learned masters, where the written word stands alongside the spoken word, in a fantastic celebration of knowledge and wisdom.
Lockerbie, the Book Festival Director has this year brought us a cornucopia
of superb choice .
