One of my favourite annual events, Dublin Writers Festival, is on again this year from 17th-25th May. The programme is amazing; events all over Dublin from Smock Alley Theatre and The Ark, to Dublin Castle and even a barge on the Grand Canal! You can check out the full programme here.
As usual the Festival organisers have put together a broad programme that caters to everyone, whether you’re looking for a fun day out with your children, or whether you’d like to write for video games. There are also fringe events on including some interesting nights in The Liquor Rooms.
I am particularly interested in the talk hosted by Anna Carey featuring Edward St. Aubyn and Paul Murray which takes place this coming Sunday in Smock Alley Theatre at 8pm. I adore St. Aubyn and reviewed his trilogy on the blog in 2011. I’m also a huge Paul Murray fan (and am waiting impatiently for his third novel!) and loved both of his novels.
Hopefully see some of you other bookworms, word nerds and writers during the Festival next week!
