About Our Literary Advent Calendar 2020

So many incredible books by Irish authors and authors living in Ireland were released this year, without the usual fanfare of festivals and launches. We’re delighted to celebrate a small selection of these authors here and we’ve invited twenty-four writers to submit a short video reading from their new books.

Visit our Advent Calendar here and join us each day from 1st to 24th December to unlock a new reading.

Each day’s video will also go live on YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook.
