Cuirt International Festival of Literature 2012

The Cuirt programme has been launched (Tuesday, March 13th) and once again, we look set for a very interesting series of events during the week of 24th through the 29th of April.
This year, Cuirt has partnered with the Galway Education Centre (Ionad Oideachais na Gaillimhe) to run literary events in schools all week. Included in these will be a series of workshops with children's writer Alan Durant (Burger Boy, GOAL!, Dear Tooth Fairy, Always and Forever....) and an event with current Irelands' Childrens' Laureate, Siobhan Parkinson!
Also, Judi Curtin (!!!...the Alice and Megan books, Eva's Journey, Eva's Holiday, and the new Time Spell books, Friends Forever and Double Trouble) will be appearing at the Town Hall Theatre on Wednesday, April 25 at 11:00am. Judi is wonderful and her books are a joy, so this is a can't miss event!
(p.s. Time Spell: Forever Friends is another book about the Titanic and it's wonderful!)
 Judi also has a website where you can find out all about her books and the latest Judi Curtin news:
