The Edinburgh Book Lovers' Tour...

Edinburgh Book Lovers' Tour

The Edinburgh Book Lovers' Tour & Literary Pub Crawl are led by Allan Foster, author of 'The Literary Traveller In Edinburgh' & 'The Literary Traveller In Scotland', published by Mainstream.

To discover literary Edinburgh, you have to walk it, defying Robert Louis Stevenson's "bleak winds" and exploring Dorothy Wordsworth's "passes of dark stone", simply because there is no other way of penetrating the ancient wynds, closes and creeper-ridden burial grounds of this city, whose literary past is written on it's dark and hoary face. 'The Edinburgh Literary Traveller' (see 'buy the book' above) recounts many lives and tales, but to squeeze 500 years of literary Edinburgh into one single volume is an impossible task. There is so much more to tell, and so much more to see. Having travelled the length and breadth of Edinburgh researching and photographing the sites featured in the book, I can assure you the pickings are rich, the locations diverse and stimulating, and with over 500 years to choose from, everybody's reading taste is catered for from Robert Burns to J.K. Rowling. So why not accompany Allan Foster on a book lovers' odyssey around the Old Town to explore more of literary Edinburgh's fascinating and never-ending story, complete with commentary, readings, dramatisations and lots of laughter.
