On the Road with All About Books

Dublin City FM’s All About Books is going on the road! Katy Conneely will host a series of free panel discussions investigating and dissecting the themes of this year’s Dublin UNESCO City of Literature.

New routes to reading: BookTok and Bookstagram

4th November at 2pm in Ballymun Library

Social media has changed how we engage with books – go into any bookshop today and you’ll see a dedicated BookTok section. It also has more and more people reading and engaging with literature. The panellists will discuss how this has played out in the industry. You’ll hear from Bronwyn O’Neill, Booktoker & Digital Editor of VIP Magazine, Niamh Donnelly, writer, critic & journalist and Mick Finucane, co-owner Chapters Bookstore.

Access for All

11th November at 2pm in Rathmines Library

Michelle Lynch, Communications, Advocacy and Outreach Manager, National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) and Jenny Murray, Deputy CEO Children’s Books Ireland will discuss the ways in which their organisations are working to make literature more accessible to everyone. They will be joined by Kevin Curran, writer & teacher, whose books have been produced both in paper and audio format.

Diversity in Publishing

18th November at 2pm in Rathmines Library

Katy will be joined by Oein DeBhairduin, writer, author & Traveller Cultural Collections Officer at The National Museum and Matthew Parkinson-Bennett, publisher of Little Island Books to address and discuss how to better diversify Irish literature.

Works in Translation: Broadening Horizons

25th November at 2pm in Ballymun Library

Works of translation and reading more internationally are becoming ever more popular. This event will be a discussion between Declan O’Driscoll, reviewer, Bridget Farrell, founder of Bullaun Press and Lynsey Reed, General Manager of Literature Ireland on this rise in popularity.
