TREVOR / BOWEN LITERARY FESTIVAL 2013 ANNOUNCED
Mitchelstown Literary Society hopes to organise the above literary festival to run on the weekend of 19th July 2013 to 21st July 2013 inclusive.
The William Trevor/ Elizabeth Bowen Literary Festival commenced in 2007 when substantial sponsorship funds were made available by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to help initiate the project. Since 2010, the event has been run without any main sponsor or grants.
Almedia Website & Graphic Design, Mitchelstown has been a partner from the outset.
During the past 6 years, we have succeeded in bringing some of the best known writers and literary academics, from within the country and from abroad, to speak at the event including Victoria Glendinning, Julian Gough, Maurice Harmon, Eoghan Harris, Sophia Hillan, Phyllis Lassner, Sr. Margaret MacCurtain, Dolores MacKenna, Tom McCarthy, Ulick O'Connor, Bernard O'Donoghue, Donncha O'Dulaing, Susan Osborn, Eibhear Walshe and Clair Wills and, on one occasion, Cormac MacConnell proved a wonderful opening night M.C.
Some of our contributors, over the years, were either born locally or their parents were from the Town. In this category were Tom Aherne, Gerald Kean, Maura Richards and Louis McRedmond, R.I.P.
UP TO THE MINUTE DETAILS OF THE EVENT WILL BE POSTED TO THIS WEBSITE AS SOON AS THEY ARE FINALISED
