Dublin Book Festival

Dublin Book Festival has been running since 2005. This year it is in the lovely Smock Alley Theatre from Thursday 14th to 17th November.

Here are some events that appeal but full details here

Friday 15th November at 6pm in The Black Box.

Every year, around the world, the Day of the Imprisoned Writer celebrates and supports writers who resist repression of the basic human right to freedom of expression and who stand up to attacks made against their right to impart information and insight. On 15th November Theo Dorgan, poet and prose writer, and Shona Murray (Broadcaster) will read from the work of writers based around the world who have been targeted because they had the courage to speak their minds, challenging injustice and confronting governments and oppressive regimes far afield and closer to home.
