Cuirt International Festival of Literature 2017
Of course, my interest here is primarily in the programme for young people.
Cuirt offers the Cuirt Labs and brings authors, illustrators and other creative artists of all sorts into the lives of our students, giving them entertainment and inspiration. From primary through to young adults, the workshops give young people the opportunity to meet and work with some of the best and most popular in Ireland today. This year, we have Tatanya Feeney, Erika McGann, Caroline Busher, Gerard Siggins, Claire Hennesy, Shirley-Anne McMillan, Dave Rudden....and many others sharing their time and talents in what proves to be a fascinating and exciting time. While the schools have been busy booking places for their classes, there is always ample opportunity in booking events for the kids and all the family. And there are some events for kids as Gaeilge, for the Irish language speakers. The Saturday/Sunday workshops will be of great interest to young people aged 12-18. Truly something for everybody! See what you can book now:
