Great news – the Kildare Readers’ Festival micro-site is now live, with full details of all the activities over three days.
The festival kicks off with the Mayor’s Festival Reception at 6pm in Time bar in Naas and the Devise & Conquer Theatre Company’s performance of The Proposal by Anton Chekhov. (If you miss The Proposal on Friday, you can catch it again on Saturday evening at 6pm in the Osprey Hotel Ballroom.)
Well-known names in the Irish literary arena will feature during the festival, including Sheila O’Flanagan, Dermot Somers, Brian Keenan, John Minahan and John Connolly.
I’ll be reading from “Petticoat Rebellion” in the Osprey Hotel as part of the Kildare Author Panel, along with John McKenna and Rob Kitchin. Dermot Bolger will chair this event. The Author Panel starts at 12 noon, and finishes around 1.30pm.
