Dublin Writers Festival Programme

Dublin Writers Festival revealed its impressive lineup and programme last night. The writers featuring include John Banville, Roddy Doyle, Seamus Heaney, Michael Palin and Paul Theroux, just to mention a bare few at random as a taster of what can be expected. The entire list can be seen on the Festival website.

Some of the Festival events that have caught my eye are:
  • The Jekyll and Hyde Inheritance: Writers' and musicians' responses
  • Low Characters and Strange places: Live performance of contemporary poetry
  • Wanderlust, Mosquitos, Philosophy: Paul Theroux discusses his work
  • Orpheus Sings: Tri-lingual (German, Irish, English) project on Rainer Maria Rilke
  • Love, Art, Mortality: Contemporary poetry on the theme of change
  • Artists in the World: Art's relationship with current events

The Festival will take place 23 - 29 May 2011 in a number of venues around Dublin city centre.
