The Bookmark is keen to stimulate community enthusiasm in all things literary. To that end we aim to bring interesting, exciting authors to Grantown, both established names and those starting out on their writing careers.
Tues 13th Semptember 2016 we held an event with Catherine Czerkawska for her novel "The Jewel" in The Garth Hotel, Grantown on Spey. "The Jewel" is a fascinating novel about the life of Jean Armour and her husband, Robert Burns. There was book discussion by the author and audience and songs of Robert Burns sung by Marie-Louise Napier. We had a wonderful turnout, over 40. See the author's thoughts on the evening: http://wordarts.blogspot.co.uk/
The Bookmark is also responsible for organising Grantown's new Wee Crime Festival which runs in the autumn. 'Dark Nights, Dark Deeds... Death in Grantown' is a great success, this season is our 7th year. Details
