Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

7.45pm | New Irish Books 2021 Showcase – Books for Age 8+

November 19, 2021 7:45 pm
Cost: Free
Until 8:45 pm

Welcome to the New Irish Books Showcase! We are delighted to introduce you to some wonderful new Irish children’s books for readers of age 8 to 12+ years. 

Join us for an evening of back-to-back presentations from the creatives behind some exciting new children’s books published in 2021. There will be a mix of books, from debut authors, to award-winning writers. Each author will have four minutes to tell you all about their book; the story, their publication journey, and maybe even some sneak peeks from between the covers! 

We invite parents, guardians, teachers, librarians, booksellers, aspiring writers/illustrators and all-round children’s books enthusiasts to attend this exciting event. The books showcased will be suitable for readers ages 8 to 12+ years old.

• Erika McCann (Tabitha Plimtock and the Edge of the World)

• Donny Mahoney (Jason Sherlock: Great Irish Sports Stars)

• Siobhán Daffy (No Ordinary Joe)
