Vogue editor features in Boswell Book Festival line-up
Actor Nigel Havers and Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman are among the writers lined up for this year's Boswell Book Festival.
The event, which is in its seventh year, takes place in May in Ayrshire.
Taggart star Alex Norton and former Labour minister Alan Johnson are also booked to appear at the festival.
Its eclectic line-up also includes Great British Bake-Off contestant Flora Sheddon and Dominic Dromgoole, a former director of The Globe theatre.
Festival director Caroline Knox said:" You don't have to just love books to love this festival.
"The range of life stories that populate the programme is incredible from actors, bakers, plant hunters, lovers and adventurers, to war heroes, judges, poets, painters, financiers and Tsars."
The three-day event, which is held at Dumfries House near Cumnock, is billed as the world's only festival of biography and memoir.
It is inspired by Ayrshire writer James Boswell, who is regarded as the father of modern biography.
His best-known book, The Life of Dr Johnson, has never been out of print since its publication in 1791.
