Literary gems will glitter by the loch
ULLAPOOL, on the shores of picturesque Loch Broom, is about to welcome some of the country’s best-loved writers, along with hundreds of book fans, all descending on the town for the annual Ullapool Book Festival.
Now in its seventh year, the festival, which gets under way tomorrow, has attracted a host of award-winning writers including acclaimed crime writer Denise Mina, who opens the festival at 10.30am on Friday with readings from her last book, Still Midnight, and her new novel, The End of the Season, due out this month.
The festival will close on Sunday, May 8, with John Burnside, who will read from his novel A Summer of Drowning, which will be in bookshops next month. He will also talk about his award-winning memoir Waking Up in Toytown.
