When Anna is sent to stay with her dad at Fairy Hill, strange happenings make her begin to wonder if the fairies she’s heard about are real. And if they are, could her little brother Jack be in real danger? Students will join beloved children’s storyteller Marita Conlon-McKenna for a reading and discussion about her latest book Fairy Hill (The O’Brien Press). 

This is a schools event. Expressions of interest should be emailed to info@dublinbookfestival.com
