Dublin Book Festival

The Dublin Book Festival website is up and has a full list of events. It will be running from 7 - 9 March and will act as a showcase of new and established Irish writing talent.
I’ve come up with a few highlights from the three days including:

Friday 7 -

> Author reading with emerging writers - Geraldine Creed, Alison Foster and David Maybury

> In Conversation: Anthony Cronin

> Author reading with Liam Ó Muirthile, Colm Breathnach, Deirdre Brennan and Cliodhna Cussen

> Up For Discussion: DeValera VS. Collins with Ryle Dwyer, Mary Banotti and Dr. Martin Mansergh TD, chaired by Eoin Purcell, Mercier Press

Saturday 8 -

>Treats for Kids with Tom McCaughren

>10th Birthday Celebration | International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY)

>Author reading with Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Medbh McGuckian, Pat Boran and Joan Newmann

Sunday 9 -

>Author reading with Kevin Barry, Geraldine Mills and Mike McCormack

In case you missed what I cleverly did there, have a second look at the first event on Friday. It should be an interesting weekend - so if you’re around drop in and have a read/listen to what ever is going on.
