BookMark Book Festival


Welcome to BOOKMARK 2018.

I am writing this on a snowy February day but looking back over the past five successful festivals warms my heart - and my toes!

These years have seen BOOKMARK establish itself as a key attraction in the book festival calendar. Hosting a varied, dynamic and talented range of authors, the event has grown in popularity with audiences from near and far.

In 2016 the festival moved into The Blairgowrie Community Campus which has provided us with increased capacity and flexible public space. Adapting to the change has been both challenging and exciting. One thing which has not changed, however, is our commitment to the founding principles of the festival: to foster and encourage a love of literature in all its forms by sharing our passion for reading and writing in a friendly, inclusive environment.

Let's raise a toast to another warm, witty and thought-provoking BOOKMARK in Blairgowrie, Rattray and The Glens.

I greatly appreciated the superb organisation and was amazed at the level of enthusiasm for the Festival considering the relatively small size of the community.  It was well worth it for me to come up to Perthshire and I was only sorry I couldn‘t stay around for the main events the next day.
