Media Release: Inverness Book Festival 2014 – line-up announced

Inverness Book Festival 2014

An Eden Court event in association with Sandstone Press

THE final line-up for the Inverness Book Festival has now been confirmed and tickets are on sale.

This year, there is, as always, a great line-up of authors and events – with subjects ranging from the Antarctic with Gavin Francis to 20th-century Ireland with Man Booker-shortlisted Sebastian Barry.

There is Tartan Noir with Louise Welsh and Doug Johnstone, and 1970s Chicago and beyond is explored with Bonnie Greer.

The timing of the festival lends itself perfectly to delve into the independence referendum debate with Robert Crawford and Iain MacWhirter

For the first time, there will be an evening of Gaelic language books, organised by the Gaelic Books Council and two important events for young readers sponsored by Publishing Scotland.

Plus, the No. 1 international bestselling author, Kate Mosse, is at the helm for the Big Book Group event.

Full details of the festival line up are available at or at and tickets can also be purchased there or from Eden Court’s box office on 01463 234 234.

Printed brochures detailing all events at the festival will be available from Eden Court in the coming weeks.

Inverness Book Festival 2014 will run from Tue 19 – Sat 23 Aug.

Notes to editors:

Eden Court is the largest multi-arts venue in Scotland. It re-opened in November 2007 following an extensive redevelopment programme, which saw the addition of two purpose built cinemas, a brand new flexible second theatre space and two dance and education studios.

Eden Court is the only theatre in Scotland to offer Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) courses in Drama and Dance. These are extracurricular courses, which offer pupils from across Highland the opportunity to study at Eden Court for an SQA Higher Dance, Drama or Intermediate 2 exams. Aside from Eden Court, there is only one school in the Highlands where pupils can sit SQA Higher Drama exams.
