Books, food, craft, prizes- oh my! Town of Books Festival Treasures

 Are you making room  for all the treasures you'll find at Graiguenamanagh's Town Of Books Festival?  You may want to use the idea in this photo to create cool new shelf space! Perfect for relaxing & reading! 
So...you'll be tempted by books on all 3 days of the festival, & on the Sunday from 11-5 you'll be tempted by the artisan food & craft at our market! One of the big favorites is always Edward Hayden's goodies, & my tip is to get there early, because his stall is often one of the first to sell out! Is it simply being one of TV3's celeb chefs that gives him such a following? I think it is his tasty food & winning personality- and of course Edward is a fantastic teacher, whether it is through his cookery books, on telly, or in person.

And, as the cliche goes-- that's not all! The Treasure Trail is back on for the second year in a row, too.
Pick up your treasure map & questions at the festival office (there will be signs,) answer the questions found the trail, & drop your completed form back in to the office to be in with a chance to win some exciting prizes. 1st prize will be an Irish Rugby jersey signed by the whole squad! There will also be book voucher prizes, so get on the Treasure Trail! And, don't worry, we won't send you up Brandon Hill to look for Highwayman Freney's gold-- you can do that on your own time :-)

See you at the Festival, 21-23 September!
