In this year's Writer's Week in Listowel, the festival is celebrating it's 40th anniversary. And what an amazing programme they have! This year's festival is promising to be truly special, with an amazing variety of events. Focusing on the children's events, there will be a full programme set up just for children of all ages running from Thursday the 2nd of June through to Sunday the 5th of June. It will include some of our favourite children's authors, such as Sarah Webb, Judi Curtin, Roisin Meaney, Inbali Iserles, John Boyne..... there will be a Wandering Word workshop and a Bookmaking workshop with the Happy Artist... the list is incredible!
So while the adults are enjoying a huge variety of events featuring everyone from Cathy Kelly through to Richard Dawkins, John Connolly to Rita Ann Higgins (talk about variety!) the younger among us have loads to keep them interested and occupied and delighted.
