DLR Library Readings

DLR Library Voices

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Library Service are very good to literature. Be thankful if you live nearby and tell them how much you appreciate their efforts.

Readings will be staged in County Hall and will feature a broad range of Irish and international authors.
DLR Library Voices will continue with Joseph O'Connor and Julia Kelly on 22 May. O'Connor's magnificent Star of the Sea is now followed by his new book Redemption Falls which is short-listed in the 2008 Irish Book Awards. Julia Kelly also features in the Awards short-list in the Irish Newcomer category for With My Lazy Eye.

Local favourite Hugo Hamilton will read from his eagerly anticipated new novel, Disguise, on 5 June. Hamilton's wonderful memoir of growing up in nearby Glasthule, The Speckled People, became a massive international bestseller.

On 17th June, DLR Library Voices presents John Boyne, whose The Boy in Striped Pyjamas was awarded The Tubridy Show Listeners' Choice Award last year.

On 24 June, UNICEF Ireland Ambassador and best selling author Cathy Kelly will be in conversation with Kathryn Holmquist.

Tickets, priced Euro 5, are available in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Library Branches. Further information is available in DLR branch libraries and on the DLR website
