Event Description

Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2020 is taking place from Thursday 26th March until Sunday 29th March. This year, festival events will be taking place in dlr LexIcon and the Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire and in dlr Mill Theatre Dundrum. We are delighted to announce that 8 events for adults and children are now onsale, with participants including Curtis Sittenfeld, Colum McCann and friends, Anne Enright, Louise Doughty, Niall Williams and Mike Hanrahan.

Poetry, as always, plays a starring role and in this year’s Lyric Note strand we welcome Lemn Sissay, Jackie Kay and Peggy Seeger.

For everyone aged 6 and over, we present the legendary Michael Rosen.

The theme of this year’s festival ‘The state of us’ is as much a question as a statement, an acknowledgement of uncertainty. As we consider how we are faring out in these changing times and take stock of where we are, we celebrate the power of words to stimulate, unite, delight, inspire and agitate. Through poetry, novels and non-fiction events, Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2020 will see international authors share their stories and cultures.

The full festival programme will be available in January.
