A very warm Highland welcome to BOOKMARK (Blairgowrie, Rattray and the Glens book festival).
Launched in October 2013, the inaugural event was christened 'Brilliant BOOKMARK!' by the local media.
Responding to a demand from a range of book groups in East Perthshire, BOOKMARK was born of a passion for literature in all its forms. Our aim now is to encourage readers and non-readers of all ages to explore the world of the imagination and travel where words and images take us.
'Books are a uniquely portable magic.' So says Steven King. BOOKMARK'S aim is to pass on that unique form of magic to our audiences. I'm sure all our authors appearing at BOOKMARK would agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment.
Here's to another happy, vibrant and magical BOOKMARK!
