Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival
The eleventh annual Mountains to Sea - dlr Book Festival will be held from March 28th to 31st 2019. The Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival enjoyed a fantastic debut in 2009 thanks to the support and enthusiasm of local book-lovers and, thankfully, not a few first-time visitors to Dún Laoghaire. One of our guests at the 2018 festival, Ali Smith described 'the act of storytelling as an act of profound generosity'. It always has been; story is an ancient form that will tell us everything we need to know about the contemporary world. The theme of the 2019 Festival will be 'Speaking with Strangers' and in the sharing of stories the individual selves we all are, meet and transform in the telling, into something open and communal.
