BookMark Book Festival

BOOKMARK 2016 Schools Programme

BOOKMARK has always supported a writer's in schools programme with these author visits proving to be hugely popular with both pupils and teachers. Past event have been sponsored by various funders but this year BOOKMARK is funding the entire programme directly to ensure that the festival reaches the widest possible children's audience. The organisation feels this is a vital part of its outreach programme, helping to foster a love of literature from a very early age.

All events will be held at Blairgowrie Community Campus with children from Rattray and Kirkmichael schools joining Newhill and St Stephen's pupils.
