Welcome to the 2011 Dublin Book Festival!
2nd March to 6th March 2011
Publishing Ireland is delighted to announce an extended programme at this year’s Dublin Book Festival. Author events will be held from Wednesday, 2nd March – Sunday, 6th March 2011, in a variety of venues throughout Dublin City including the National Library of Ireland, The Gutter Bookshop, The Project Arts Theatre, Dublin City Libraries and as with previous years, Dublin’s City Hall.
Dublin Book Festival brings together the best of Irish published authors, offering a chance for the voices of both established and up and coming authors to be heard. Our poets and authors will gather to celebrate Dublin’s designation as a UNESCO City of Literature.
The Dublin Book Festival promises a great line-up within a relaxed and fun environment with something for everyone. We look forward to seeing you there!
