The Book Festival’s indepdendent online bookshop is your place to find all of the exciting titles from our programmes.

Making books more affordable for pupils and schools

Pupils will get so much more from their Book Festival experience if they are able to read the relevant books beforehand. To make this easier for schools to achieve, we have a number of exciting discounts and giveaways on offer.
