Welcome to Islay Book Festival! Set against the stunning backdrop of Scotland’s whisky isle, and part of Argyll's thriving cultural scene, we're a community festival which draws a lively audience from locals and visitors alike.
We offer sessions on crime, historical and contemporary fiction, non-fiction and island themes, children’s events, school visits, poetry, performances, workshops, and lots more. So come along for a dram, some fantastic Hebridean scenery, and some book chat!
We're currently working hard to update our website and prepare for the 2018 festival. This year's dates are 27th–30th September, so put that in your diaries!
