under weathered.

I’m heading back under the duvet for the day to fight off whatever has me feeling lousy. Here’s what I managed to miss over the weekend:

> Spencer Tunick had a few hundred people strip down and stand in the water. And then again in an apartment.
> The Dublin Pride Parade went off with a glow - despite the rain!
> Belfast was Barcamped.
> The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian was premiered.
> The Fringe Festival started looking for volunteers.
> Vulpe Libris gave away some books - I managed to win one!

And I caught something that has me craving the solace of my warm bed.

one big city | one little book

The book for this years Dublin: One City, One Book project has been announced as Johnathan Swift’s, Gulliver’s Travels. The project aims to get everyone in the city reading, and talking about, the same book.

Vintage Classics has released a new version of the book (pictured) and there is a rake of publicity events (including some with Fiona Tierney and illustrator Úna Healy, Andrew Carpenter and a screening of Upon The Window Pane in the IFI)

More about the project on their website.
