Among the venues showcasing the many events organised by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (DLRCoCo) they are to include the National Maritime Museum of Ireland (NMMI) and Royal St. Georges Yacht Club.
So take a note of the busy festival programme (PDF) with an exciting and varied line up of authors, workshops and events for you. Keep up to date on Facebook and Twitter or by calling into the festival box office in the Pavilion Theatre on Marine Road.
The festival's publicity image features the Dun Laoghaire Harbour mouth entrance (all 232 metres wide) which is 'stacked' full of literary works. With such large books!... facing opposite Dun Laoghaire waterfront, it's little wonder that the county's major new Central Library & Cultural Centre headquarters currently under construction is to be considerable larger!... than the existing library.
The new facility will have a performance space with seating for 100 people, an art gallery, education workshop space and café. To read more about the new library (click here also for YouTube) to see the building develop in fast motion sequence.
The new structure stands next to the NMMI maritime museum housed in the former Mariners Church, where as previously reported is the Dun Laoghaire & the 1913 Lockout Exhibition.
This commemorative exhibition includes unique historic photos of Dun Laoghaire that dates back a century ago. The exhibition runs to 18th January 2014.
