We’re excited to be able to welcome audiences back to Birnam Arts for the Birnam Book Festival.
Every year, volunteers from the committee create a festival that is an inclusive event for all ages, where audiences can participate in workshops, lively discussions with authors or just sit back and listen to inspiring speakers and enjoy great music.
We’re delighted to announce the following events, which will take place at Birnam Arts across the weekend:
A programme for children and families, including Kate Leiper, our inaugural Illustrator in Residence, James Robertson, Nicola Wright, Molly Arbuthnott, and the Women of Dunkeld book project.
Mara Menzies performing her award-winning show ‘Blood and Gold’.
Crime writer Louise Welsh with her long-awaited novel, ‘The Second Cut’.
Saltire Society Award winning author, James Robertson on his latest novel ‘The News of the Dead’, with filmmaker, Anthony Baxter.
’Homelands’ by Chitra Ramaswamy, an award-winning journalist and author. Her second novel explores themes of history, friendship and what it means to belong.
