Citywide Read at St Patrick’s Festival – Family Event
St Patrick’s Festival Monday March 16th between 12 and 3pm Festival Village, Merrion Square.
Dublin City Libraries Citywide Read will take over the Festival Village Big Top where author Shane Hegarty will deliver a series of readings from Boot in the unique surrounds of a circus marquee. Shane will be joined by artist Jane Groves who will curate a robot-making laboratory encouraging children and families to put their inventor skills to the test.
Families will also have an opportunity to recreate the world and characters of Boot with the help of local Irish Illustrators.
Learn to communicate with robots by creating your own robot language using nanotron synthesiser in the Robot Sounds Studio created by Dabbledoo Music, who will create a robot themed interactive play resource.
Free. All welcome.
