Ennistymon Dylan Thomas Festival and Pop-up Bookshop Festival 2012!

Two great events for readers are taking place in Ennistymon this weekend.
The first is the Dylan Thomas Festival at the Falls Hotel in Ennistymon, once the home of Thomas’s wife Caitlin. The three-day festival, from May 18th to 20th, will feature lectures, recitals, a documentary screening and a history tour outlining Ennistymon’s connections to Thomas and other poets, including Brian Merriman.

The second is the Ennistymon Bookfair, taking place on Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th May 10am-5.30pm

Booksellers will be in the Courthouse Gallery and taking over empty shop units on Main street.
We won’t be trading there this year, but our friends at Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop, Dublin Book Browsers, Tall Stories, Banner Books, Jim O’ Toole, Geata Buidhe Books & Salmon Poetry Publishers will be. There will be books for all tastes from childrens books to the rarest antiquarian books and plenty of local interest items.
Booksellers are also willing to provide valuations for rare books on the day.
So if you love books, be sure to drop in!
