Thanks to our Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival Writer in Residence, Declan Hughes for writing up a review of the many events he attended during this year's Festival. Declan was a cheerful presence, to be found on stage, backstage, in the audience, leading enthusiastic literary tours around Dún Laoghaire (during unpredictable weather conditions!) and generally extending a warm and generous welcome to authors and audiences alike during the Festival.
If you haven’t had a chance to read Declan’s short story from last year’s festival, click here to read Upon The Stair, a gripping tale, set at the festival and featuring the inimitable Ed Loy.
