Dave and I will be featuring some events during the festival but I wanted to preview the upcoming Dublin Book Festival 14-17th November because I hear events are booking up fast.
The festival will be based around Smock Alley Theatre and Temple Bar this year, with events in obvious venues like libraries and bookshops further afield.
The main events, as always, are authors in conversation, readings and panel discussions. This year, there's also a book club to participate in. New and budding authors are covered with a range of events to help them get started, meet agents, talk to publishers, etc.
The full programme is available here.
