Edinburgh's Radical Bookshop

Our Events

We run a year round program of events, bringing some of the most exciting, creative, thought provoking writers right into the heart of the community. In 2019 we hosted almost 200 gatherings, launches, workshops and discussions. In 2020 we went digital.

Past speakers have included Reni Eddo Lodge, Terry Eagleton, Layla Saad, Angela Saini, Kerry Hudson, Sabrina Mahfouz, Gary Younge, Jackie Kay, James Kelman, Ann Pettifor, Andrea Lawlor, Vahni Capildeo, Silivia Federici, Roseanne Watt, Valeria Luiselli, Juno Dawson and Nikesh Shukla - to name but a few!

Our major events are the May Day Book Fair, the Book Fringe & the Radical Book Fair.

We also have bookclubs!

Women In Translation : Next (virtual) meeting May 24th

Other Fruit: LGBTQ Bookclub : Next (virual) meeting May 24th

and usually also have Bright Futures: Sci-Fi and Women in STEM bookclubs.

We'll also be running some fun instagram live chats with writers and creatives through the summer so find us over @lighthousebks - next one in June 10th with Ry Herman chatting romcoms and vampires with Lindsay at 7!
