Another highlight of our 2024 festival

Islay Book Festival are thrilled to bring you another highlight of this year’s festival… a very special event around George Orwell! It will be chaired by the author’s son and Patron of the Orwell Society, Richard Blair (pictured), to mark the 75th anniversary of the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. One thing we can already tell you is that Les Wilson, author of Orwell’s Island: George, Jura and 1984, will be joining the conversation. More details about this event organised in partnership with The Orwell Society and the other authors taking part will be announced soon.
