The Boswell Book Festival is intended to honour the life of one of Scotland's greatest literary lights, James Boswell.
People's life stories past and present are at the heart of the Festival, just as people's stories were at the heart of Boswell's writing. His groundbreaking Life of Johnson, has never been out of print. His confessional diaries, long kept hidden by his descendants for their unflinching honesty, finally saw the light of day less than a hundred years ago and became international bestsellers.
