Bennett and McEwan head to Edinburgh
Two of the best-loved names in contemporary literature, Alan Bennett and Ian McEwan, will make exclusive appearances at the Edinburgh International Book Festival this year, reports the Times. They are among more than 650 authors to feature in the world’s biggest and most prestigious book event, which is sponsored by the Times.
"The festival’s programme launch yesterday heralded another coup for the organisers: 'virtual' appearances by Norman Mailer and Alice Munro. Owing to age and infirmity, neither author has been available to meet the public for some time. They appear by means of Margaret Atwood’s remarkable LongPen invention, which features for the first time at a book festival."
