Mountains to Sea Festival 2013 – Preview

MountainstotheSea

The Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2013 runs from the 3 – 8 September 2013 at a variety of locations in the Dun Laoghaire area. The festival has a number of international names and some of the usual faces from Ireland also. The big draw for me would be Margaret Atwood, but it’s always great to see Seamus Heaney, Roddy Doyle, Anne Enright and the other Irish writers.

Their web site is here and you can download a brochure for the event here.
