The 2024 Paisley Book Festival, themed “Imagine Something Different,” invites attendees to embark on a transformative journey into the world of stories and storytelling. Embracing the festival’s renowned radical edge, this year’s theme encourages us to step beyond conventional boundaries and seek out new ideas with the help of award-winning writers from Scotland and beyond. Through a diverse programme that challenges and inspires, we’ll be exploring the endless possibilities of the imagination.

“I have to say, I did a talk today with @BookPaisley for some p6 students from @ThornPriSch and they were one of the best groups of readers I’ve met. So engaged & so open for discussions. An excellent visit. Meeting them was a pleasure. Hope you enjoy the rest of #ShowUsWhoYouAre”
