The 2011 Edinburgh Book Festival programme has been published and from it we learn that Iain Banks will be appearing at the RBS Main Theatre on Thursday 18th August, from 8.00pm – 9.00pm in an event titled ‘What Lies Beneath the Surface Detail’.
Tickets for the event are £10.00 and will be on sale from 8.30am on Sunday 26th June.
More information can be found at www.edbookfest.co.uk.
There’s also a rumour on Twitter that Alex Salmond will be conducting the interview on the night.
[Many thanks to David H of The Banksoniain for the heads-up on all of the above.]
