Sindo Book Festival 2008

As seen elsewhere already, Mags and Sarah have both covered it, the Sindo have launched a new Book Festival to take place in Dublin this year - with celebrated names from all literary genres taking part. Specifically from the world of children’s books Marita Conlon-McKenna, Niamh Sharkey, PJ Lynch, Judi Curtin, Derek Landy and Anthony Horowitz will all be making whistle stop appearances on the first day of the festival.

On Saturday 6 September each writer will have 30 minutes in the Shaw Room of the National Gallery - not much time each so it will be interesting to see how it works logistically… but looking forward to hearing/seeing six great writers all in one room.

You can book events through the festival’s website -

    “I know that there are other festivals, but I wanted something that would reflect the Sunday Independent … I wanted intellect and froth…

    …everything from chick lit to serious writers.”
