A group of young Scots will work together with the team at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, using their skills and talents to create an exciting strand of events as part of the 2018 programme.
The young people get the opportunity to show the world what they think it’s important to be discussing in 2018 through a series of events including interactive Q&As with much-loved authors, chat-show style interviews, topical debates, book signings, hands-on workshops and more. All the events take place over the final weekend of the Book Festival.
The full Year of Young People strand of events is launched in June 2018.
Following a Co-Design approach, young people are a driving force in shaping, developing and implementing all events for the Year of Young People 2018.
