BOOKMARK Book festival

BOOKMARK opens the covers of the book world by bringing the best of today’s writers to Perthshire. Over the past 12 years, the main Festival, in October in Blairgowrie, has gained a high reputation for its combination of professionalism, friendliness and its impressive list of outstanding authors and Chairs. We showcase the well-known;  Sally Magnusson, Ali Smith, S G MacLean and Chris Brookmyre. Just as importantly, we introduce new talents who make unforgettable debuts and forge long-lasting friendships with us; Olga Wojtas, Simon Conway, Merryn Glover, Chris Whitaker.  A wide variety of fiction is programmed with poetry, nature-writing, history, memoir, drama and song, offering something for everyone. Whether you choose to open a book by reading, listening, watching, writing or performing, BOOKMARK keeps those pages open by bringing you the writers who fire our imaginations.

We look forward to welcoming you to our fantastic events.
