Sally Magnusson

Her bestselling memoir about her mother, Where Memories Go: Why Dementia Changes Everything, has been credited with improving knowledge and understanding of this widespread brain condition. Out of that experience she founded Playlist for Life in 2013, a charity that encourages access to personalised music on iPods for people with dementia to help them reconnect with their memories and their loved ones.

Her previous books include The Flying Scotsman, Family Life, Dreaming of Iceland, Life of Pee and the Horace the Haggis series of children's books. Her first adult novel will be published next year.


We were here last night and had to come back today.

We know we will have a lovely time.

It’s been absolutely brilliant, such a lot of hard work has gone into this and it shows.

Nice venue - clean, fresh. Fantastic auditorium.

Excellent. I’ll definitely be back next year. Sally Magnusson was so interesting and inspiring. The calibre of speakers was first class. Thanks so much.

What a brilliant festival! Great authors, lovely venue, & everyone I’ve spoken to is just so friendly!
