The Dublin Book Festival opens with a very special evening with travel-writing legend, Dervla Murphy, author of over 20 travel books, including her most recent, Cuba: The Island that Dared, and Gaza: A month by the Sea which will be released in February 2013. Also sharing the evening is one of Ireland’s most popular authors, Alice Taylor, who talks about the special people in her life in And Time Stood Still, her first book for a number of years. Sean Rocks, presenter of RTE Radio 1’s Arena, will lead both authors in a conversation about their lives and sources of inspiration throughout their writing careers.
