Celebrate the 10th anniversary of Kildare Readers Festival with Kildare Library & Arts Service this October with an eclectic line-up of literary luminaries.

This year we look forward to welcoming Douglas Kennedy, author of The Great Wide Open, The Heat of Betrayal, The Moment and many more. Joseph O'Connor will return to the festival along with Kit de Waal and Henrietta McKervey. For the season of Samhain, Niamh Boyce, Martina Devlin and Stacey Halls will talk witches and their place within history and throughout the canon of fiction. Further events this year will include workshops on poetry and short stories.
