This year we welcomed Sir Chris Bonington, Rory Bremner, Peter Snow, Alan Johnson, Jeremy Paxman, Mark Lawson, Kate Mosse and Douglas Hurd, amongst others.
The Incredible Spice Men joined the throng of famous names and here they are posing for photographs with the wonderful backdrop of Lennoxlove House and the Lammermuirs in the distance.
Children came and enjoyed story telling given by authors with wondrous imagination and then a little chat afterwards during their book signing sessions.The late autumn sunshine was a bonus and the customary sideshow enabled young visitors to hone their circus skills.
And this is what it is all about. Authors talking about their new books! Here we have Kate Mosse being interviewed by John Sessions about her new publication 'The Mistletoe Bride'.
