It will be a wonderful social and literary gathering bringing together

book club members and readers from all over Ireland and beyond.

Supported by Clare County Library, the festival includes author readings,

discussions, workshops and walking tours through the narrow streets

and lanes of Ennis.

 

We offer sessions on how to organise a book club, advice on reading lists, events as Gaeilge

and an opportunity to compare notes and meet with other Book Club members. 


We are keen to give book clubs an eclectic mix that reflects the reading passions

of many so our programme have a very broad brief.
