Kildare County Council Library And Arts Service are proud to present their eight annual Readers Festival. This is an entirely free literary festival with the aim of connecting readers with authors and artists, working to bring the very best from the world of literature to Kildare. The festival programme has something for everyone, including regular favourites such as Ten Books You Should Read with catriona Crowe and Manchán Magan and our Sunday Morning Session with Dermot Bolger, who this year is joined by one of Irelands most popular authors, Paul Howard.

The full programme of events can be found at
