The Book Festival is back for a second year, with fiction, fantasy, history and superheroes.
The Byres Road Book Festival returns for its second year on September 22, with guests including Chris Brookmyre.
The hub of the festival remains in the west end, with Hillhead Library, Waterstones, and the Oxfam Book and Music shops once again binding the literary magic for book lovers.
Organisers are hoping to attract over 1,000 people, with 28 events planned over four days as well as drop-in sessions and activities.
Returning strands for this year include crime, and celebrated author Chris Brookmyre will kickstart festival proceedings at Hillhead Library on Friday September 22 with an open floor on his latest Jack Parlabane novel ‘Want You Gone’ which delves into cyber crime.
There will also be a comedy strand this year, with guests including Ian McMillan and Tony Husband, as well as the Witty Women panel hosted by Catriona Murray with guests Mairi E. MacLeod, Maureen Macleod and Seonag Monk.
Former Primal Scream member Martin St John will bring a rock & roll touch to proceedings as he reads from his autobiography 'Psychedelic Confessions of a Primal Screamer' in Oxfam Music Shop on Sunday September 24.
"The 2017 Byres Road Book Festival programme has something for everyone," said Byres Road & Lanes Business Improvement District Project Manager Deborah Murray.
"With 28 events, we are really excited to celebrate the vibrant literary landscape with the city. From superheroes to live cartoons and the ever-popular crime genre, we aimed to craft a programme that inspires and delights audiences of all ages and encourages you to leaf through our festival.
"Returning over the September weekend in Glasgow, it’s a great day out, so snap up a ticket for one of our unusual events and help us celebrate the city’s love of literature."
Tickets are now available for all events, and can be bought from the Byers Road Book Festival's official website.
