For those of you who are looking at this mid-summer’s day (ish) and getting depressed with the eventual advent of winter- do not fret, for the end of the summer has its advantages! This year’s Dublin Book Festival will take place in none other than the recently refurbished Smock Alley Theatre in Temple Bar from the 14-18 November. We are seriously excited about this venue- not only becuase of its long and dramatic history (more to come on that!) but also because of the events that will sit perfectly inside this beautiful building. We will have everything from readings and performances to more ‘involved’ literary events so remember to save the date for what will be the most dynamic and cracking festival yet. Keep it here for more details and updates as well as some more general and interesting musings on all things books! We are also on facebook and twitter and so unavoidable really! Also don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter too so you won’t miss a thing!
