Edinburgh International Book Festival

Q&A with Director of Edinburgh Book Festival Nick Barley

We spoke to Nick Barley, director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, visiting lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University and President of the Word Alliance – an international network of the world’s leading literary festivals. He shed some light on how one goes about planning a literary festival of this scale, the importance of highlighting translation and the effect digital natives have on the festival.
