It’s time for one of the highlights of the Edinburgh — nay British — nay world literary calendar: the West Port Book Festival. Four days of workshops, performances, sharings, talks, and most of all books. We’re very excited. They have this to say:
The West Port is Edinburgh’s Soho, a heady mix of booze, bosoms, bespoke tailoring and BOOKS. It would almost be churlish not to celebrate this profusion of pages so we run an annual book festival that plays out over a number of wonderful venues, ranging from singular second-hand bookshops to crisp art spaces and whisky-scented pubs. This year the 2011 WPBF will run from 13-16 October.
