Children & YA

As part of our involvement in READ ON this week’s events for young people include:

  • Creative Writing workshops
  • Passports events encouraging young readers to reflect on the meaning of citizenship and cultural identity in contemporary Europe and to discover work by European writers whose family heritage is from other continents, writers who have been programmed throughout the festival
  • Blurandevu events where John Boyne, E.R. Murray and Cethan Leahy will be interviewed by transition year students from Coláiste Pobail Bheanntraí who have completed workshops in how to interview a writer in public

You can view all the writers involved in our Children & YA Festival here.
