Dublin Book Festival 2013 has passed, and with the majority of our events booking out, it was our most successful to date. For four days authors, readers – both young and old, publishers and aspiring writers gathered together and shared their love of words and books. It was such an honour to have so many talented writers discuss their work, inspiration and passion for writing.

It was a joy to see children lounging on beanbags listening to stories told to them by the authors themselves and taking a stab at writing their own stories.

It was a festival of words and ideas, laughter and imagination. I hope you were as inspired as we were.

I would like to thank everyone involved, the DBF committee who give up their valuable time throughout the year to work on the festival, the DBF team for their dedication and hard work, the wonderful volunteers, the publishers who came from around the country to support their writers, and finally the authors themselves – thank you for taking us on your journeys.

 

Until next year,

Julianne Mooney
