So what does a Publisher actually do?

In this exclusive event for Wonderfest, we’ll peek inside the doors of one of Ireland’s leading publishing houses, The O’Brien Press, and find out what goes on inside. Members of the O’Brien Press team will bring us on a book’s journey from manuscript to actual finished book, with a virtual tour showing us what happens where, followed by a live Q&A session.

The O’Brien Press was set up by Michael O’Brien and his father, Thomas in 1947. They have been publishing books for over forty-five years and are based in Rathgar, Dublin 6.

If you’re fascinated by books and how they are made, this free event is for you!

A live interactive event, delivered digitally.

Book your crew in for some wonder… And they’ll all read happily ever after!
