BookMark Book Festival


Welcome to BOOKMARK 2019.

I write this on a bitterly cold January day looking out onto an apparently 'dead' garden. Save for the birds desperately searching for food, there's not much action outside. Inside, however, is a hive of activity as 'Team BOOKMARK' plan this year's festival programme. And what a programme it promises to be! Following on from last year's success, BOOKMARK Chair, Gail Wylie, has been working very hard to ensure a range of top quality literary names will be heading for Blairgowrie in October.

Scotland boasts over fifty literary festivals which come in all shapes and sizes. At BOOKMARK we like to think of ourselves as 'small but beautifully formed'! Based in our local Community Campus and manned entirely by volunteers, the festival aims to provide our audiences with a unique, intimate and memorable experience.

My wish for BOOKMARK 2019 is that each attendee goes home at the end of the day feeling welcomed, uplifted and entertained. As Ernest Hemingway very wisely noted, 'There is no friend as loyal as a book.'
