Spine Tingles & Fun!

First announcements for the 2012 Book Festival programme!
 2012 Festival dates: Fri- Sun, Sept 21-23 
Spine Tingles & Fun!

We are pleased to welcome to Graignamanagh's Town Of Books Festival Irish author Louise Phillips, who will be talking about her exciting new crime novel 'Red Ribbons' (Date TBA) Louise has won several writing awards, and is also the Crime Scene writer for writing.ie-- no wonder her book & video trailer hit that perfectly chilling spot!
Have a watch!

We also are pleased to welcome Mark Graham, i.e. Festival Monkey, who will tell you about his quest to attend 3 festivals a week in Ireland, for a whole year! (Date TBA) He'll have just finished the year when he comes to Graig's Town Of Books Festival- will he have managed to achieve his goal? Especially after being swept out to sea last week & injured! You can follow his very amusing writing & adventures on The Irish Times' 'Festival Fit' and on Mark's own site, A Year Of Festivals In Ireland.
Glad we didn't lose you, Mark! The world would be a more boring place without you!

There is plenty still to come- including events for children, additional talks, music, walks/tours, food & craft fair, local history and more! We will be announcing the details soon. 
Thank you, hope to see you in Graig during the festival, Fri- Sun, Sept 21-23 2012
