Festivals love dialogue, so join us at Edinburgh International Book Festival alongside Edinburgh Art Festival (EAF) for our new Sunday Salon series.
We’ll host a line-up of artists to talk about the finer details of their work and practice in a relaxed setting.
These events will be hosted at the Castle View Studio at Edinburgh International Book Festival Hub at Edinburgh College of Art, Lauriston Place, Edinburgh EH3 9DF.
Further information on access and visiting Edinburgh International Book Festival can be found on their website.

In the first of our Sunday Salon series, join Fusco and Salmon as they speak with Kim McAleese, Director of EAF, about their recent work. On 11 August they launch EAF with History of the Present, a new opera-film. Fusco will also share her new book of essays, Who Does Not Envy With Us is Against Us and Salmon her new book, Cinematographa.
Sunday 20 August, 18:30 - 19:30 | Castle View Studio, Edinburgh International Book Festival at Edinburgh College of Art
Ira Sachs is in Edinburgh to present his latest film Passages, a daring, nuanced and frankly very hot love-lust triangle that explores how narcissism can feed into creativity even as it causes relationships to implode. Meanwhile, Brandon Taylor, our favourite Substack cultural essayist (sweater weather), is in town with his highly anticipated second novel The Late Americans. A fine opportunity to place the pair in conversation to talk queer cinema, representations of intimacy, and the art that’s currently feeding them. Chaired by EIFF Programme Director Kate Taylor.
