We had a wonderful day on Saturday 8th September at Straloch Estate for our final event ahead of Bookmark 2018 in October. The sun shone over the loch, and a wonderful picnic was organised to satisfy our guests.

Four poets - Christine  Da Luca, Diane Henry,  Alan Riach and Hamish Whyte - entertained the crowd with poems based on articles in the Hunterian Gallery in Glasgow

We were absoloutely delighted with Alan Riach said that "BOOKMARK is one of the greatest small Book Festivals in Scotland.  Far better than Edinburgh'. What an accolade coming from him! There's now less than four weeks until Bookmark 2018 commences, so be sure to get your tickets now to avoid disappointment.  


Congratulations to all the Bookmark organisers and volunteersw who made it such a wonderful event.  It was a huge privilege to be included in your Muriel Spark celebration.  The whole festival atmosphere was so welcoming - and what a fabulous audience!
