Pentlands Book Festival is 20 events over 28 days in Colinton, Currie, Balerno and Juniper Green, organised by local folk in conjunction with Currie and Colinton Libraries. A community Festival offering a packed programme covering every taste - from headliners Jackie Kay and Val McDermid, we’ve events from the quite serious to a downright silly literary pub quiz. As always we feature local writers and, to mark the centenary of the end of the first war, we again celebrate the War Poets who met in Juniper Green. Check out the programme on the events page and click for more information and full details. All the PBF events are free but must be booked through Eventbrite - just click on the link to book. Enjoy the festival!"
