Edinburgh Book Festival: 404 Ink, Elif Shafak & Nicola Sturgeon

  • Baillie Gifford Main Theatre Charlotte Square Edinburgh, Scotland, EH2 4HQ United Kingdom (map)


Elif Shafak understands the challenges of public intellectual life: she was wrongly accused of ‘public denigration of Turkishness’ for her novel The Bastard of Istanbul. Here, she talks to Heather McDaid, founder of new Scottish publishing company 404 Ink and co-editor of Nasty Women, an anthology of essays about women in the 21st century. Joining them is Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, whose life is lived in the spotlight.

Tickets: £12, £10. Event information and tickets:
