From Friday 7th – Saturday March 8th the Readers & Writers Festival Programme 2008 will be taking place in Sligo in various locations, to celebrate Silgo County Library’s first Writer-in-Residence, author Niall Williams.

Sligo Central Library, Tubbercurry Library and the Yeats Memorial Building will throw open their doors to the public who want to discover, discuss and meet published writers.

Hear Carlo Gébler speak on what it means, as a reviewer and as a writer, to pass judgement on the books of other writers who are his contempories, Niall Williams on the theme of love and longing in his books. Manchán Magan will share his answers on what it means to be a travel writer especially in this age when the world appears entirely known and mapped.

Come celebrate International Women’s Day with writers Suzanne Higgins, author of three best-selling books and Pauline McLynn, author of six novels including her sensational new publication Bright Lights and Promises.
