Literary Advent Calendar 2020

We unlocked a new reading each day from 1st to 24th December 2020. All videos are available to rewatch at the links below

So many incredible books by Irish authors and authors living in Ireland were released in 2020, 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.
