LONDON - The 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival that opened on Aug 11 calls upon authors, participants and audiences to consider the importance of freedom in a world where democracy and capitalism are being brought into question.

The festival this year welcomes over 900 participants from 55 countries and regions to its tented village in the heart of Edinburgh and runs through Aug 27.

The theme of this year's event is "freedom to think", as topics like free speech, freedom of movement, freedom of expression and freedom of identity are going to be discussed in a diverse and wide-ranging program of talks, debates, workshops and readings taking place at the Charlotte Square Gardens and on George Street.
