Pentlands Book Festival - a week of lively events in Colinton, Currie and Juniper Green - is organised by the community councils of the three villages, in conjunction with Currie and Colinton Libraries.

We are part of Book Week Scotland which this year runs from

Monday, 21st - Sunday, 27th November, 2016

From tiny tots to adults; from those who like to be outside to those who prefer the indoors; from the historical to the bang-up-to-date, we'll be trying - once again - to find something for everyone in the 2016 Pentlands Book Festival. Click here to see how our programme is shaping up so far.

Last year's hugely successful festival saw us attract a wide range of writers, and use venues throughout Currie and Juniper Green. The planning of the 2016 programme is well under way and, rest assured, the events this year offer even more variety than before. We've even planned some "early-bird" events in the run-up to Book Week Scotland to whet your appetite! keep checking this site for details. We'll publish the full programme just as soon as we can.
