Dublin Writers Festival
We have lift off thanks to a generous and charming reading from Seamus Heaney (who last night admitted himself that he has turned seventy “many, many times in the past few months”) at the National Concert Hall yesterday. Tonight brings further treats, with Ed O’Loughlin, Aifric Campbell and Peter Murphy reading at 6 p.m. in the Project and Simon Schama at 8.15 in Liberty Hall. Dublin will be awash with writers! Plus ca change. . .
More information about writerly shenanigans here. Reports, reviews and recommendations all welcome on this blogness. More of the Festival anon, when this Bear comes up for air.
