Book Festival 2021

Book Festival approaches - 27th / 28th November


Well we almost got away with it, but Covid has caught up with the Cove and Kilcreggan Book Festival.

Unfortunately it means that BBC broadcaster Gavin Esler will be unable to be with us on Saturday, but he’s being replaced by another kenspeckle BBC colleague Brian Taylor.

Brian has just left his post as Political Editor of BBC, and is now a columnist with The Herald. He also posts a mean podcast.

He’ll be joining Ailsa Henderson for a chat about identity and the different things it means for the four nations at 12 noon.


Full List of Authors:

Sat: James Robertson, Brian Taylor, Ailsa Henderson, Gavin Francis, Douglas Stuart

Sun: Denise Mina, Kirsten Innes, Alan Bisset, Andrew Cotter, Graeme Macrae Burnet

Our two day Programme is here.
