The Dublin Book Festival is one of Ireland’s most successful and vibrant book festivals, running since June 2006. This year, they are taking the festival online, with launches, podcasts and interactive events for our audiences all taking place from the comfort of your own home!
In response to the level 5 lockdown, they have created DBF Snug, a specially curated package of events running from Tuesday 10th November to Friday 13th November. They hope that this mini-festival helps bring comfort and solace to their audiences during these strange times. They have something for everyone at DBF Snug, but a must-see highlight is our evening with former President, Mary McAleese who will be joining them for a conversation about her new book Here’s The Story.
The main festival will run from 27th November to 6th December with a dedicated programme for children and families and also for schools. There are events for writers and readers of all ages!
They are kicking off the festival with some stellar events beginning with an evening of conversation and music with Kevin Barry, Roddy Doyle and Christine Dwyer Hickey in partnership with the RTE Radio One Arena Live show. We are also looking forward to Dublin City Libraries Readers’ Day with Marian Keyes and Roisin Ingle and our live event with the An Post Irish Book Awards winners! Plus many, many more events and all of them FREE!
Dublin UNESCO City of Literature and Dublin City Council are proud to support Dublin Book Festival
