In the midst of these further strange and uncertain times, Dublin Book Festival is here to offer solace. While the Main Festival will still run this year from 27th November to 6th December with a myriad of events to explore from home, given the move to level 5 restrictions, the DBF team really wanted to play a small part in offering people some entertainment, comfort, and inspiration at this time. Welcome to The DBF Snug, a specially curated package of events, which will run from Tuesday 10th November to Friday 13th November.
Join us in John Boorman‘s estate, seek parenting advice from Dr Malie Coyne, escape to nature with Richard Nairn, and celebrate the launch of the next issue of Winter Papers with Kevin Barry and contributors. On Friday, we welcome Former President of Ireland, Mary McAleese to celebrate the publication of her memoirs. So sit back, snuggle up, and let Dublin Book Festival do the rest.
