Winter Tales book festival in Dalkey

Dalkey tell us that most books are sold in December but there are no book festivals anywhere in Ireland at Christmas.

On Saturday 7th December, they'll be changing that.

They say

Come to Dalkey to meet your favourite authors, solve your Christmas present dilemmas, get your books signed, listen to great writers and speakers , while having a laugh.
There will be a bookshop and signings at all events. And what’s more, a wonderful bookshop is opening at 20 Railway Road from end of this month for all of December! Who knows, if we support it well, they just might stay!
