This year's Edinburgh International Book Festival not only boasts a rare public appearance by Dame Muriel Spark, but also includes two events in association with the Library. One examines the state of the press, and features media commentators Roy Greenslade and John Lloyd. The other is the National Library of Scotland Donald Dewar Lecture, in which former Foreign Secretary Robin Cook speaks of foreign policy, Iraq, and the crisis of democracy. See our Events page for more.
